Very Easy Delicious Potato Leek Soup

I found this receipe many years ago and had not made it for a long time. I have made it several times now and it is so easy and tastes great and I wondered why I had not made it in so long. I am adding it to the long list of Potato soup on this site because I thought it might be a good one if you are very busy but need a good nourishing meal for the family. My family does not like creamy soups but you can add cream to it if you choose. Enjoy!

Stove Top

Ingredients

2 Tbsp
butter or oil
3
large peeled potatoes cut in small cubes
3 or 4
leeks white and light green parts washed well and sliced into small pieces
several dash(es)
salt and pepper
6 c
chicken broth or stock

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Melt butter in large pot, add potatoes and leeks. sprinkle salt and pepper to taste on vegetables. Cook and stir occasionaly to soften.
2
Add broth or stock, simmer until vegetables are very tender, about 25 minutes or longer if need be.
3
I have found that a longer simmer produces a richer flavored soup. My family does not like creamy soups but if you like you can add fresh cream to your soup last few minutes. I like it that way but need to please the family.

Optional few sliced carrots. Some cooked noodles.
