I found this recipe on another site but varied a few of the ingrédients to make it my own and still turned out good.

Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

3
leeks sliced and cleaned (white and tender green parts)
3 c
peeled potatoes(depends on size so amount will vary for you...you be the judge how much potatoes you want in soup)
6 c
water
1 1/2 tsp
salt
1/2 c
heavy cream
1/3 c
minced chives or parsley(can be spiced already or fresh)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a large heavy saucepan, bring the leeks, potatoes, water, and salt to the boil over high heat.
2
Cover partially, reduce heat, and simmer for 20 to 30 minutes until the vegetables are tender.
3
Correct the seasoning, to taste, and puree with a handheld immersion blender, or in batches in a food processor.(I personally like to use a laddle and scoop up soup, putting in a food processor then making it into pureé).
4
Whisk in the cream and reheat before serving. Top each serving with a sprinkling of fresh chives and/or parsley.
