Leek and Potato Soup

 

One of my favorite things about winter is soup. When it’s cold outside, nothing warms me up more.

I love making a big pot and having it on hand – pairing with sandwiches, using it to dip food in.

On the menu from the weekend was a homemade Leek & Potato Soup:

Leek & Potato Soup

  • 2-3 leeks, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 large or 2-3 small potatoes, chopped
  • chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 bay leaf

Heat a medium sized pot over medium low heat. Add a bit of olive or coconut oil. Saute the leeks and garlic for about 5 minutes until they start to brown. Add the potatoes and enough broth to cover. Simmer for 45 minutes until the potatoes are tender.

Blend everything in a blender (lid on, but cap removed to let steam release – cover with a towel to prevent it from spilling). Pour back into the pot.

I served mine with some turkey bacon and shredded cheese. Perfect!

What’s your favorite soup?

    I don’t think I’ve ever had a leek…

    Favorite soup – chicken, probably, though I also love chilis and winter squash soups!
