Whether it's cold outside or hot, we love soup.

And this Leek, Potato and Artichoke Soup can be served hot or cold, so it's definitely one to put in your go-to file.

There's just something about it that's comforting — and we could all use a big dose of comfort about now.

Serve it with a sandwich or a big slice of that bread we know you've been baking for a satisfying lunch or dinner.

Leek, Potato and Artichoke Soup

Makes 8 servings. Recipe is by Corinne Cook.

  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 3 or 4 small leeks, white part only, cleaned and chopped
  • 6 (14 1/2 ounce) cans chicken broth
  • 2 (14 ounce) cans artichoke hearts (not marinated type), drained
  • 4 medium potatoes, pared and cubed
  • 1 cup half-and-half
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground white pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon Tabasco sauce

1. In large Dutch oven or soup pot, melt butter and saute onion and leeks until tender.

2. Stir in broth, then add artichokes and potatoes. Cook, covered, over medium heat until potatoes and artichokes are tender (about 15 to 20 minutes.)

3. Stir in half-and-half, milk, Worcestershire, salt, pepper and Tabasco. Simmer on low heat for 5 minutes.

4. Remove from heat. Puree small batches in food processor or blender until smooth. Serve hot or cold. Garish with lemon slice and fresh parsley.

One cup of fresh or frozen blackberries provides about 60 calories, along with nearly 8 grams of fiber. That’s about a third of the amount of fiber you should aim to eat in a day. All that fiber can help increase satiety, curb cholesterol, support weight loss and regulate blood sugar and insulin levels. It may also boost your digestive health: blackberries are prebiotics, which means they feed the friendly bacteria in your gut that have been tied to immunity, mood and anti-inflammatory benefits.
