Little Green Soup

1283 Views 19 Comments

Low in fat and lighter than the more traditional leek & potato version. Serve with Rye bread for a warming family lunch. You and your children will love this easy to make little green soup.

I prefer to use the whites of the leek, but this is preference only, so feel free use the whole vegetable.
