Chunky Potato Leek Soup

“My family and I love a steaming bowl of potato leek soup on a cold winter evening, but we don’t love the butter and fat content of regular soup recipes. So I created this lighter version. I have shared it with many folks, and everyone who has tried it loves it for the robust, satisfying flavour.” —Christine Frye, Odessa, Missouri
