Little in life is more comforting than potato soup – except for a no-effort recipe! Creamy and easy to prepare, this satisfying crockpot potato leek soup requires a few ingredients and spices for the perfect dish.
Low-sodium chicken stock and Greek yogurt create a thick, creamy base. Yukon Gold potatoes (with skins for more nutrition) lend rich, starchy body to the soup. Fried leeks top the dish with a smoky flavor reminiscent of bacon without the fat and calories.
All you have to do is add the ingredients to your crock pot, set the timer, and let the soup cook. Once done, add the yogurt, fry your leeks, and enjoy the mingling aromatic flavors!
