Potato Soup "recipe"

I call this a "recipe" because I use a premade soup as my base and just add a few of my own extra touches. The base is Imagine's organic/Vegan creamy potato leek soup. What I add:
3 red potatoes
2 purple potatoes (for fun)

1 Fresh leek
Kale

Chives
Cut potatoes into quarters with the skin on

First cook the leeks in some oil, salt and pepper for about 3-5 minutes (until tender)
Add in potatoes (they need a few mins to soak in the leek flavor) in about 3 minutes add the Premade soup.

Bring to a boil and let simmer until potatoes become soft (about 20 to 30 minutes)

I simmered this for a LONG time (probably more than 30 minutes) so that my potatoes were falling apart in my soup.
About 5 minutes before you'll eat, add in the Kale and Chives.
Some bread to dunk into the soup is great, but the last couple days, I've been just eating the soup alone.

okay time for work : )
See you tonight! Teddy

I doubt I can find that soup where I am, but I will try with another soup base and see if I can get your same great results!

Hi! Potato soup looks good. I noticed you will moderate a board on Veggin Out. Looking forward to seeing you around there and reading your blog. I like the way you enjoy researching different foods.

I included a link to you on my vegan cooking/ family blog.

This potato soup recipe looks good.

I don't understand that 'feed' thing - will you tell me about it tomorrow when you come over? - I am hoping you'll come over tomorrow....

Aw, your mom's post is so sweet! I love that.

Your soup looks fab. I have used that brand of soup on more than one occasion. It's "just like homemade." (The day I make homemade potato soup is the day Mattie will start talking to me!)
