Potato, Carrot, and Leek Soup

Submitted by: AMATHIEU

Introduction

a slight twist on potato leek soup a slight twist on potato leek soup
Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    - 4 large leeks, cut lengthwise, separate, clean. Use only the white and pale green parts, chop.
    - 2 Tbsp butter
    - 4 cups chicken broth
    - 1 lbs potatoes, peeled, diced into 1/2 inch pieces
    - 1 lbs carrots, peeled, diced into 1/2 inch pieces
    - Salt & Pepper

Directions

1. Cook leeks in butter with salt and pepper in a medium sized sauce pan. Cover pan, cook on low heat for 10 minutes. Check often. Do not brown leeks! Browning will give leeks a burnt taste.

2. Add broth, carrots, and potatoes. Cook for 20 minutes. Scoop about half of the soup mixture into a blender, puree and return to pan. Add salt + pepper to taste.

Number of Servings: 4

  • Really tasty! My daughter wanted to make something with leeks, and she thinks its great. I did the stick blender thing and blended up about half of it so there's still potato and carrot chunks throughout, yum. - 8/8/12
