Ingredients:

  • 4 leeks, cleaned and chopped
  • 4 medium potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 cups vegetable or chicken broth
  • 1 cup milk or heavy cream
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Olive oil or butter for sautéing
  • Optional toppings: chopped chives, grated cheese, crispy bacon bits, or sour cream

Instructions:

Melt butter or olive oil in a large pot over medium-low heat. Cut up some onions and garlic and add them. It will take about 5 minutes of cooking until the onions are clear.

Add the chopped leeks to the pot and keep cooking, stirring every now and then, for another 5 to 7 minutes, until the leeks get soft.

Put the chopped potatoes and the chicken or veggie broth in the pot. Once the mixture starts to boil, lower the heat, cover, and let it cook for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the potatoes are soft.

With an immersion mixer, blend the soup until it’s smooth after the potatoes are done cooking. If you don’t have an immersion blender, you can carefully put small amounts of soup into a blender at a time to make a mush.

Add the heavy cream or milk and mix it in well. Add pepper and salt to taste.

You can add more broth or milk until the soup is the right consistency. Otherwise, it will be too thick.

Choose from chopped onions, sliced cheese, crispy bacon bits, or a dollop of sour cream to serve on top of the hot soup. Have fun!

You can eat this soup by itself, but you can also make a full meal by adding some toasted bread or a simple green salad.
