white potatoes, peeled and quartered
leeks, bulb only
salt to taste
freshly ground white pepper
This recipe was a really great start! I only put 2lbs of potatoes, added a carrot, stalk of celery, a parsnip and let it boil. When soft I mashed it all. Then I sauted the leeks in butter and added a little bit of flour. When that was soft I added it to the vegetables and broth. YUMMY!!
Like other reviewers, mine also turned into mashed potatoes. Nice flavor, but I was hoping for soup.
The soup was delightful! I did use a Hand mixer instead of the food processor. This cut the amount of prep time. I also cut the amount of butter used for sauteeing the leeks. Use stock instead with a little bit of butter to cut some of the fat in the recipe.
Recipe turned out great. I substituted Vegetable broth (I am a vegetarian)...
To me this is what Potato Leek soup should taste like. I use the entire leek though and I cooked everything in one pot. When the potatoes were done, I blended the whole thing in the blender. Awesome!
Wow!!!!!! Delicious soup. This was SSSSOOOOO easy to make and was just heavenly to eat with a crust bread salad and glass of white wine. I did have to use 1 extra can of broth to thin it out. I just used an hand mixer to leave some chunks. We topped it with shredded cheese and pigged out for two days!! This recipe makes a ton and keeps well. What more could you want? Two thumbs up!!!
Comfort food at it's best. I added an extra leek and needed to add extra broth to thin it out a bit. I also added garlic when cooking the leeks. I used a hand mixer to puree the potatoes right in the cooking pot. So easy!! Both my husband and I loved it!!
It was very good, however it was VERY thick! I will try to make it again, using more broth, less potatoes & more leeks. But still a very good base to start from!
