It’s been cold and rainy for the past few days (though not rainy today; I haven’t been outside so I don’t know about cold), so I thought I’d post this awesome, hearty, perfect for cold, rainy weather soup I made not long ago. You can find the recipe here: http://noteatingoutinny.com/2011/02/15/roasted-potato-leek-soup-with-kale/#more-6216
Because of my strong belief that bacon makes everything better, I added some bacon and even used a little bit of the grease to sautee the leeks. Bacon flavored leeks … how can that not be awesome? I also added some chicken broth to my vegetable stock since I didn’t have enough vegetable stock to go all the way. Vegetable stock isn’t popular in these parts, so I was only able to find one sized container that wasn’t quite enough, but buying two would have given me way too much that would have gone to waste. The cool thing about this soup is that it can be completely vegetarian or more carnivorous (like I like it). Either way, it’s a great comfort soup for those Spring days that feel more like winter.
