Every cook's dream for a quick easy meal," says home cook Crystal S.
Creamy Potato and Leek Soup
Even the picky eaters will love this potato and leek soup.

Hungarian Potato and Sausage Soup
"The savory flavor from smoked sausage and the earthy sweetness from onions and cabbage are balanced perfectly with a splash of vinegar and a bit of sour cream, all brought together by soft and tender potatoes — the only way this gets better is serving it with a nice hunk of buttered, crusty bread," says recipe creator Chef John.
Cauliflower Potato Soup
