Potato and Leek Soup Recipe

Potato and Leek Soup


  • 375 grams leek
  • 30 grams butter
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 375 grams potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 570 ml stock
  • Good splash of milk
  • 2 teaspoons of sugar (optional)

How to make Potato and Leek Soup

  1. Trim off the tops and roots of the leeks and peel away their tough outer layer. Cut the leeks in half and rinse well under cold water. Then chop into little pieces (the soup will be blended so just roughly chop them up!)
  2. Gently melt the butter in a heavy-bottomed pan.
  3. Add the leeks and onion, stir until soft (about 5 minutes). Add the potatoes after a couple of minutes and saute them.
  4. When they are coated in butter, add the stock, milk and sugar (optional). Let the soup simmer for 20 minutes or until cooked.
  5. Blend the soup in a food processor or blender after it as cooled a little.
  6. Reheat the soup on the stove and serve (if it is too thick, add more milk).

    I am wondering if anyone knows of a really yummy potato and leek soup recipe. I have tried searching the net but am wanting a recipe that is similar to the delicious soup's you get in restaurants and the one's I found seemed rather plain. http://ezinearticles.com/?Acai-Berry-Review---Where-to-Buy-Acai-Berry-Diet-Supplements&id=3544397
