Potato, Leek & Kale Soup

It was blistering cold and windy yesterday. Temperatures were in the negative numbers and of course this gave our heating system a hell of a workout! To be honest even with the heat on and sweaters aplenty I was still cold so out came the soup pot. This is a great quick warming soup, full of root veggies in a delicious rich broth. Hope you enjoy and stay warm!
