I also made my first potato leek soup from the Mastering the Art of French Cooking. I must say it was super delicious and I think it was the easiest soup I have ever made in my life. I think everyone in the whole wide world needs to make this at least once! I can't wait to have more for lunch tomorrow..
I also altered the recipe. It said to put butter or cream, I put butter and some 1% milk to make it creamy.
To make the potato leek soup, you will need -
3 cups leeks, chopped (3 leeks, the whites and the light green)
3 1/2 cups potatoes, chopped & peeled
7-8 cups water
3 tbsp butter
2 tbsp milk
salt and pepper.
Put water, potatoes, leeks and salt into big pot. Bring to a simmer and simmer 40-50 minutes covered until veggies are soft. Mash potatoes and leeks with masher, then use hand blender and puree the soup. Season with salt and pepper, add butter and milk. Stir and serve.
I hope you enjoy this delicious soup!
Until next time,
