Potato-Leek Soup

Potato-Leek Soup

Ready in 1 hour

Great depth of flavor with both chicken and vegetable broth. Adapted from Alton Brown's potato leek soup (vichyssoise).

"This soup was very good. It needed to be a little more spiced up so I added 1/8 tsp. cayenne, 1/2 tsp. dry mustard and 1 tsp. of thyme. I let the soup sit for an hour before I added 4 slices of cooked/crumbled bacon and the yogurt. Then I heated it back up (not to boiling) but almost and it was delicious ... Thank you Jsumme for the recipe ... my husband absolutely loved it!"
