How to Make Cream of Leek and Potato Soup

Step-by-Step

  • 1In a large heavy saucepan, bring the leeks, potatoes, water, and salt to the boil over high heat.
  • 2Cover partially, reduce heat, and simmer for 20 to 30 minutes until the vegetables are tender.
  • 3Correct 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).
