Easy version of soup using wild leeks, chicken broth and instant potato flakes. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley.
I bought some leeks on whim -- always wanted to try a Potato-Leek soup. My only complaint is that I got less than 1/2 a bowl -- the family loved it. I'd seen other recipes that called for cornstarch, but I found that pureeing a portion, as suggested, thickens it quite nicely. There's no need to be exact in the proportions of ingredients ... I preferred a little more butter, and I didn't have 6 leeks on hand - only 4. Will certainly make it again -- thanks.
Bacon and smoked turkey legs take a classic leek and potato soup into the hearty zone for a warming meal that's perfect on a fall or winter night.
Leeks and potatoes are simmered with a ham bone, then pureed before cream is added to this subtle soup.
This is an excellent slow-cooker recipe which is very simple to prepare and easy to adjust with different add-ins and garnishes. Add 2 cups of diced cooked vegetables (peas, corn, carrots, beans, broccoli, etc.) and a chopped smoked sausage after the soup is pureed, or garnish the soup with a little sour cream, cooked, crumbled bacon, grated cheddar cheese, or chopped chives.
Potatoes, celery and onion are cooked with chicken broth and cream, and thickened with flour in this creamy, simple, potato soup.
