It’s really cold here in Toronto! And today it is snowing! So soup is currently number one on my lunch menu! The leek and potato soup is really a classic! It is so easy to make with few ingredients that I often have on hand. And if living on a budget this soup is quite cheep too.
To my soup for lunch I enjoy some traditional Swedish knäckebröd (rye crisp bread) with cheese. I top the bread with the Norwegian cheese Jarlsberg! It is a nice combo! It’s hard to find Swedish cheese so the Norwegian one is a nice substitute.
The soup can also be served as the classic Vichyssoise. Then omit the cooking cream, chill the soup and fold in whipped cream just before serving. Vichyssoise is usually served cold, as a starter. The whipped cream will make the soup really rich so serving in smaller quantities as a starter is best in my opinion.
Remember Life is too short to not eat and drink well!
