Rated 5 out of 5 by MiMi47 from Pefect! This was so simple and delicious. Amazingly flavorful though no salt or pepper is added. I used basil pest as I had it readily available. set a side some of the potato if you want to add after blending for more texture. Great recipe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Eaglelanz from This is a great and way to liven potato leek soup I really like this recipe as I am adding more greens and cruciferous vegetables to our diet. while potato leek soup is good on its own, this really livens it up, and with the benefit of adding the kale. Everone in the family ate it! Also it is so easy to make!
