Easy Leek and Potato Soup

Submitted by: SIPHOS

Introduction

A delicious, fast and easy soup, full of vitamins from the leeks and potato skins. The batch size is huge- a good family dinner with leftovers or, in my case, several busy days' worth of dinner. Easily downsized- just make sure your amount of potatoes and leeks are about equal, and use enough stock to cover them and add milk to taste.

Note: if vegan is desired, just skip the milk. The soup can be very creamy, especially if slightly less stock is used.

Directions

1. Chop onion and leeks, then sautee with olive oil over low heat in soup pot. Sautee ten minutes or until soft, stirring often to prevent browning.

2. While leeks and onions cook, chop potatoes (with skins!) into equal pieces, 1/2 inch or 1 inch cubes. When leeks are soft, add potatoes and stock to pot. Salt and pepper. Let simmer until potatoes are soft, or about 20 minutes.

3. When potatoes are soft, remove from heat. Leave chunky, mash, or puree, depending on preference; I use a hand blender for a creamy soup. Add milk, then taste. Add more salt, pepper or milk if disired.

4. Serve hot, or freeze for another time.

Makes roughly 5 2-cup servings.
