The Creamiest Vegan Potato Leek Soup

It is getting colder here and with that comes mittens, scarves, hot chocolate and of course warm, delicious, hot soup! We love creamy soups, and love that our Mama can make this soup without any dairy whatsoever. The combination of the potatoes and the leeks are so savory, you will lick your spoon clean. There is nothing more comforting on a cold busy day, then homemade soup simmering on the stove.
If you need an easy dinner then this is the recipe for you! It's a quick and easy meal that you can serve alone or with homemade bread.
