Creamy leek & potato soup

Creamy Leek & Potato Soup

A surprisingly delicious low calorie soup in found in the Fast 800 recipes. I really didn’t think it was going to be as good as it was given the ingredients – but I was really impressed. The original recipe said it served 4 but I never liked huge bowls of soup. When I make it I get 8 servings as I use one of my many ‘small’ bowls (yes I have quite a collection – future post coming on that!) A small bowl equates to only 105 calories (that’s three kitchen utensil spoonfuls).
