How to make potato and leek soup

What better way to start an Irish meal than with a creamy potato and leek soup?

It is a traditional Irish dish which has travelled around the world and has become very popular on St Patrick’s Day for people of Irish backgrounds or otherwise.

While it makes a perfect first course it could also be eaten as an entrée along with a salad and crispy bread, or maybe as a snack at supper time.

Like all Irish dishes there is likely to be a different recipe in every home as each person like to put their own stamp on the soup.

We have taken a video from Allrecipes who show how to make a delicious version of the soup.
