Creamy Potato Leek Soup

Okay, this creamy potato leek soup might be the best soup ever? And it is so simple to make, I am OBSESSED. I am writing this right now, already planning to make this again, it is THAT good. I love it, because it is so creamy, but it is CREAM-FREE. Yes, please.

You’ll start with a base of oil, onions and garlic, then tossed with potatoes, leeks and plant butter. All sealed with thyme, broth and sherry vinegar. The best part here: tossing in chopped chives and parsley – makes this soup SO flavorful. I also topped with crunchy croutons. A spoon full with the herbs, croutons and the soup = my true happy place.
