leek and potato soup

In recipe on November 10, 2009 at 2:05 pm

another leek recipe – this time the most comforting of comfort foods.

start by preparing your leeks, and dicing about three cups of potatoes, peeled.

add both the leeks and the potatoes to a tablespoon of butter and saute until the leeks are soft, but not browned.

simmer for about 30 minutes, or until the potatoes are soft enough to squiiiish into a mush.

you could probably throw the soup into a blender at this point, but i really like the mushy, chunky texture you get from just squishing the potatoes with the back of a big spoon.

now add about a cup of milk – give or take based on the texture – adjust the seasonings to taste and enjoy!
