INGREDIENTS
1 1/2–2 cups leeks, finely chopped (use white and very light green parts)
2 cups potatoes, scrubbed and cubed or finely sliced (peels optional)
1 medium onion, finely chopped

Salt and pepper to taste

PREPARATION

  • Rinse chopped leeks very well before using.

  • Add potatoes and broth, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
  • Remove pot from heat and stir in cream or soy milk (if using). Carefully blend with an immersion blender or food processor until smooth (you may wish to let the soup cool slightly first).
  •  Season with salt and pepper to taste, and serve.
