Our family enjoys trying out different types of soups. I had earlier mentioned in my other soup recipe (“Mix vegetable soup with beetroot“) about the differently colored soups made with various veggies. The Broccoli leek potato soup falls in the category of green soup – made by using green color veggies -spinach, peas, green capsicum, cabbage, bottle gourd, almonds, broccoli, Brussel sprouts, leeks.
Since my son enjoys different types of thick, creamy soup I am happy to make and feed him different veggies in the form of soup. Soup is a good way of treating your body with many veggies together.
Broccoli, leek and potato soup is a thick and creamy soup. It has light green color. The soup has a creamy texture without adding any cream to it. The potato gives thickness and makes the soup creamier.
Since the soup is thick, it can be enjoyed as a one meal dish.
