St. Patrick's Day Soup

Happy St. Partrick's Day! This recipe is from Southern Living, but was submitted by an Irish Pub. This was not difficult to make and would be a delicious dinner for the evening, if you're not already too busy celebrating.

Recipe adapted from Southern Living.

-1/2 cup unsalted butter
-1 medium onion, thinly sliced
-1 leek, sliced
-3 large baking potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
-32 ounces vegetable broth
-1 teaspoon salt
-1/4 teaspoon pepper
-Shredded cheddar cheese
-crumbled cooked vegan bacon
-chopped green onions

Melt butter in a large pot over low hear.
Saute the onions and leeks in the butter.
Cover and cook for 20 minutes.
Add  in the potato and cook for 15 minutes covered.
Add in the vegetable broth, salt and pepper.
Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer.
Simmer for 30 minutes. 

Using an immersion blender, puree the soup until smooth.

Serve topped with cheddar cheese, vegan bacon and green onions.

This soup tasted good, but I didn't think it was extraordinary. My family had no leftovers, but I don't know if it was something I would go out of my way to make again. But I think this would be a good soup for winter.
