Green Potato Leek Soup

Green Potato Leek Soup is the perfect complement to your Saint Patrick’s Day menu! We’ve added parsnips and leafy greens to make this puree loaded with added nutritional benefit! Maybe a shot of Irish Whisky will pair nicely wink wink! Quick to prepare with few tasty ingredients makes this a perfect meal option for a cold, snowy, or sun shiny blustery day!

If Night Shades aren’t your thing, simply double the parsnips which made the soup creamy and slightly sweet when we omitted the potatoes. Change up the greens from spinach to Kale or Swiss chard. And if this soup doesn’t appeal to your tastebuds try our broccoli soup thats bright green with only 4 ingredients!
