Ham, Potato and Leek soup

Leels Cooks


We’re on a roll with the fall flavours so let’s keep this going. I like chunky, hearty soups, and anything with potato in it is always win. Ham, potato and leek are the perfect trifecta, and this soup only gets better over time.

Use any potato you wish, I personally prefer Yukon Gold over anything else. Russet is fine but will break down a bit more into the soup so anticipate that.

Make this veggie by omitting the ham and swapping for veggie stock, it’ll be just as delicious.
