this is the recipe for potato leek soup from simply recipes.

Number of Servings: 5


    * 3 large leeks, cut lengthwise, separate, clean. Use only the white and pale green parts, chop.
    * 2 Tbsp butter
    * 2 cups water
    * 2 cups chicken broth (or vegetable broth for vegetarian option)*
    * 2 lbs potatoes, peeled, diced into 1/2 inch pieces
    * Marjoram - dash
    * 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
    * 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme, or 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
    * Tabasco sauce or other red chili sauce
    * Salt & Pepper

    Note: Is gluten free if you use gluten free broth/boullion.


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 water, broth, and potatoes. Bring to a low simmer and cook for 20 minutes. Scoop about half of the soup mixture into a blender, puree and return to pan. Add marjoram, parsley, and thyme. Add a few dashes of chili sauce to taste. Add some freshly ground pepper, 1-2 teaspoons salt or more to taste.
