An easy potato and leek soup that takes no shortcuts when delivering the finest flavors and textures possible. A little bit of milk, chicken bouillon, and heavy cream are combined with the potatoes giving this soup a thick richness. Heavy cream adds intensity and tang to the velvety soup. Blending the soup will insure that the final product is perfectly combined. Olive oil prevents the soup from forming a gluey consistency.
