Creamy Potato and Leek Soup is a delicious comfort soup for those cold and chili fall days. This soup is made without any cream, and the secret to its creamy texture is the pureed potatoes. It’s naturally dairy-free and gluten-free. Today’s recipe is courtesy of my Mom. She is the Queen of comfort soups. (Hi, Mom! :)) Couple of weeks ago, she also made this Creamy Zucchini Soup. She visited us recently and one day she made this soup. It was so good to come home to  this delicious and warm soup after a long day at work. Can you believe that a soup with few basic ingredients can be so flavorful and delicious!

I also love that the ingredients are so simple and you can easily find them in your pantry. It only takes about 30 minutes to make. It is great for freezing too. You can make a large batch of this soup and freeze it for those days when you don’t have much time to cook for lunch or dinner. Just place it in the refrigerator the night before. I think this will become my go-to recipe for those days when my fridge is almost empty and I don’t have time to go grocery shopping.

I hope you give this recipe a go. As always, let me know in the comments below how you like it. Do you have a favorite comfort soup?
