Potato Leek Soup

Sunday, March 16, 2014

I normally don't share recipes on here, but this one has gotten us through this crazy winter and beyond. It's simple, delicious, (relatively) healthy and, well, it's my favorite. So there.

Adapted from a Food Network recipe (gasp!) here's what you'll need to stock up on:

2-4  Leeks
2   Bay leaves
2   Tbs of butter
2  (or 10) strips of bacon
1/2 c   Dry white wine
5c  Chicken stock
4-5  Potatoes, diced
1/2-3/4 c Heavy cream
Pepper, thyme and salt to taste

1. Rinse and chop leeks, set aside
2. In a large soup pot, melt butter and add chopped bacon. Cook 5-6 min.
3. Add chopped leeks and cook till soft
4. Add wine and bring to a boil
5. Add chicken stock, potatoes, season and bay leaves
6. Bring to a boil
7. Reduce heat to simmer and cook for 30 min, until potatoes are cooked. 
8. Puree soup in blender. Add cream and adjust seasoning to taste.
