La Madeleine Potato Soup Recipe

A wonderfully creamy potato soup is your go-to meal every winter evening for a pop of warm feelings. The leeks when added to this soup make a delicious bowl of soup. A very subtle flavor is a part of this soup in the form of leeks and chicken broth. Avoid giving a nutty flavor to your soup.

The cream added to the soup gives it a smooth texture that is extra soothing and attractive. Moreover, you can add sausages like vinegar, soy sauce, or chili sauce to your soup if you want a spicy one but it tastes fabulous even without these sauces. Do try it and have fun.
