Potato and Leek Soup ~ So Yum


My little Jono is sick so I veered from the menu ... oh shoot ! I forgot to post my menu !! ... tonight. Since he's got tonsillitis and I can feel it coming on as well, I decided a big bowl of soup was in order.

I've actually been wanting to post this for a while but finally got motivated tonight since I got a photo of the actual soup. Up til tonight, I only had the photo below of the leeks, onions and garlic cooking.


Here's how you make it.

The ingredients that I use are as follows but you'll probably want to vary it according to your tastes and the size of leeks you can buy.

2 big leeks
6-8 potatoes ( they were medium sized )
1 big onion
garlic ... how ever much you fancy
3 cups water and 3 cups chicken stock (broth)
Or you can do what I do ... 6 cups of water and some chicken stock ( bouillon ) cubes

Boil potatoes in the liquid.

Sautee garlic, onion and leeks.

Drain potatoes but reserve liquid.

Process potatoes and onion/leek/garlic mixture in food processor. I find I need to add some of the liquid to process them. When all processed, add back to liquid. Stir well and increase heat. Keep stirring so soup doesn't burn. Heat just to boiling.

Salt and Pepper. And it's ready to serve.

I love the idea of leeks, but I tried to make leek soup when I was pregnant, and the smell nearly made me sick! Ever since, I just can't bring myself to cook with them again! But it does sound yummy!
