Both leeks and potatoes are very nutritious vegetables. Potatoes are also rich in fibre and leeks are rich in antioxidants. Now considering Malta has a great tradition for delicious potatoes, we should be thinking local for this fresh vegan soup. Additionally, if you don’t want to buy the vegetable stock, you can always make your own homemade vegetable stock.

Rest assured that this soup is a winner. You can use it as a starter for a meal with friends and family.
