Delicious Leek & Potato Soup!

This is a favourite of mine, which I am frequently making for my family & flatmates. Its incredibly easy to make - and can be eaten hot or cold, for tea, lunch or even breakfast (this has been done before!!). There's nothing like a scrummy homemade soup to warm you up on a cold Dunedin day :)
Hope this recipe will become one of your favourites too, Enjoy!
