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)

How to Make Cream of Leek and Potato Soup

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.
