Delicious Leek and Potato Soup

It was a busy  day at work yesterday  including a stressful presentation so when I got home I just wanted to relax and  ended up rummaging in the fridge and used some left overs to make this soup for lunch today.

If I’m feeling indulgent I top  soup with swirl of  crème fraiche, but if  I’m being good I use yoghurt and when  I’m feeling virtuous then there’s no topping at all!
