Canning Potato/Leek Soup
Magic Bullet Ready

From shelf to soup in 8 minutes.

We are all a bit lazy sometimes and when you need something quick, it can be a game-changer to have ready-made food on the shelf, that you can just stick in a blender and/or the oven or microwave. This is a good hardy soup, it tastes great and it can be stored on the shelf for a long time.
