How to Make the Best Potato Leek Soup Recipe

Adding wine to potato soup gives it a great flavor. The wine will sizzle in the pan and you can imagine how wonderful the kitchen is going to smell when you make this. For an extra sizzle, turn the heat up a little just before adding the wine, and then turn it back down when the wine has finished reducing.

Feel free to add three quarters of a cup of heavy cream to this potato soup recipe for a creamy finish. You can also liquidize the soup in the blender, or in a food processor, if you want a creamy smooth soup but this is optional. Some people like creamy potato soup recipes and others enjoy the texture of the chopped vegetables in the soup.

This potato soup recipe with wine will freeze so make the whole amount, even if you are not feeding so many people. You could always double it too, if you want to make freezer soup. Use a dry white wine for this potato soup recipe. If you prefer to use sherry, pick a dry variety.
