My Favorite -- Potato Leek Soup

Today was a perfect soup day!  With the temperatures somewhat cooler and rainy, I decided to make some soup.  One of my favorite soups to make is Potato Leek.

It is not really hard to make and can be easily made during the week night too!




Saute about 3 leeks (rinsed and trimmed in 1 inch slices) in 2 tablespoons of butter until tender.



Add 1 large (48 ounce) chicken broth and 5-6 medium Russet potatoes (Diced).  Add to the stock pot and boil until fork tender.  You can use up to 48 ounce of broth depending on consistency.  I usually use 40-42 ounces)

After potatoes are fork tender, use a blender or immersion blender to blend.

Add light cream just before serving into soup bowls.  Ladle soup and serve with grated cheese and chopped chives for garnish.




I always serve crusty bread with the soup, too!


Did you see my bread board? - I bought it in Tuscany back in October of last year.  It is made from Olive wood.  I love it!



Now onto my second bowl!




Oh and it never hurts to include a glass of your favorite vino to go along with it, too!




Thanks for your visit!

  7. Thanks! It is nice having some cooler weather here then humidity everyday like Beaufort. I like at nights when the temperatures cool down, great sleeping too! Yes I have seen some pumpkins here so far! Thanks for your visit. Have a great weekend.
    No I have not done unpacking, not sure if I am doing all of it especially when we are just renting here for a year.....I dread thinking about moving again but want to scout the area before we invest in real estate.
