“A quick and easy soup that tastes great. I like to take a potato masher and roughly mash some of the potatoes. This helps to thicken the soup. I also like to use seasoned chicken broth. You can use heavy cream or half-and-half, depending on how rich you want the soup to be.”

Original recipe yields 4 servings

Directions

  1. In a medium pot over medium heat, combine the potatoes and broth and allow to simmer for 20 minutes, or until potatoes are tender.
  2. In a separate skillet over medium heat, saute the leeks in the butter or margarine for 5 to 10 minutes, or until tender. Add the leeks and the cream to the potatoes and stir well. (Note: This is the point I like to take a potato masher and slightly thicken the soup.)

Good recipe, however, I made a few changes. After slicing I put three chopped leeks and an onion thru my food processor and then sauted in butter (not margarine). I then added only four potatos which I cubed. While that was happening, I made a roux and added it to the mixture. The broth came next. After the potatoes were tender, I whirled them in the food processor to give the soup a velvety consistancy. Once back in the pot, I then added fat free half and half and topped with chives and crumbled bacon. Wonderful soup and thanks so much for a GREAT start Michele!

I sauteed the leeks in bacon grease for the added flavor... and the second time I made this soup I sauteed 2 chopped stalks of celery and a chopped small onion. I also put 3 cups of the potatoes in my blender and pureed to thicken the soup.

Such an amazing soup. I used 4 potatoes, and 1 big white onion. put them in the boiling water until the potatoes were really soft, then pureed them, put them back in the pot, and added the sauteed leeks. just amazing....my husband was amazed with the taste and the combo of tastes. the onion does a very nice change to it. a keeeeeeper...
