How to Make Leek & Potato Soup

Step-by-Step

  1. Cut off root end of leeks. Cut into small pieces and wash well (they can be very dirty) - Use as much of the tender green as possible and all of the white.
  2. Using a large soup pot, melt butter and add leeks. Saute until tender - cut potatoes into fairly large pieces
  3. Add chicken broth, salt and pepper and cut potatoes - simmer until potatoes are "mashing" consistency
  4. Using a potato masher, in the soup pot - literally smash the potatoes - leaving some small "chunks" You don't want mashed potatoes.
  5. Add half and half - stir well --- season with more salt and pepper to taste.
  6. This can be served like a baked potato with cheese, sour cream and chives on top if desired.
