Whenever anyone asks what my favorite recipe is, my recipe Potato Leek Soup is one of the first to come to mind. It’s ridiculously easy — just a few ingredients — and it can be made pretty swiftly with minimal hands-on work. And while simple, this unassuming soup is flavorful and warm — perfect for a chilly New England winter day.
Also, this soup is super waist friendly — it’s under 300 calories per serving, and they are generous servings. Nothing to feel guilty about here. (NOTE: I use SparkRecipes.com to calculate calories, and according to that one serving is 260.9 calories.)
To make this a meal, make a big green salad with veggies to serve with it. Crusty bread is a good side too.
Have a great weekend.
Psst! This recipe originally debuted on Sarah’s Cucina Bella in September 2008 with a not-so-tasty photo.
