  • About

This soup shows up on menu after menu, because it features two favorite Irish vegetables. On its own, a plain potato soup has the potential to be sort of heavy and bland. Add flavorful leeks with their vaguely squeaky texture between the teeth, and the soup lightens up and takes on character. Be sure to wash the leeks after slicing so you get out any dirt hiding between the layers.
