Healthy, because

Even smarter

With the potato leek soup you can say goodbye to your cold! The essential oils contained in the leek strengthen the intestinal flora and thus the immune system. They can also render pathogenic bacteria harmless and alleviate cold symptoms.

For the vegan variant, the potato and leek soup only needs to be slightly modified: Replace the butter with vegetable oil and the cream with soy cream, for example.
