Taste-tested and approved by two 18 month old girls and one seven year old boy. Note that the kids didn’t even care that this soup is virtually fat-free and so good for you it should come with a halo. Nope, they just slurped it down.
Even though the short set likes it, this soup has a grown-up vibe. It tastes like something you might be served in a fancy French bistro. I’m not sure if its glamour results from the leeks (the French love leeks) or the silky texture, thanks to my immersion blender. If you don’t have one of these babies, go ahead and get one. You won’t regret it. They’re about $12 at Superstore. I use mine all the time, but especially in January when soup is all I want to eat, in penance for December.
Leeks are in peak season in January. Yay Leeks! Januarys are tough here in Saskatchewan, so we take our excitement where we can get it….
