Recipe: Hearty Potato Leek Soup


Potato Leek Soup:

Ingredients:

4 Potatoes- chopped into small-medium pieces
2 Leeks- Green Parts Only-Sliced into rounds
3 Tablespoons Butter
2 Teaspoons Vegetable Soup Mix
4 Cups of Water
1 Teaspoon Parsley
1 Teaspoon Dill
1/2 Teaspoon Paprika
Salt and Pepper to Taste
1/4 Cup Heavy Cream

Method:

1. Place the 3 tablespoons of butter in a medium pot over a low flame until sizzling a little. 

2. Add the pieces of potato and leek to the sizzling butter in the pot. Allow them to brown for a few minutes.

3. Add the 4 cups of water, 2 teaspoons of vegetable soup mix and parsley, dill, paprika, salt and pepper. 

4. Stir to combine. 

5. Raise the flame to medium and let it boil to about half it's size for half an hour or until potatoes are nice and soft.

6. At this point you can process. (Most of the time I prepare chunky soups rather then creamy)

7. Add the heavy cream immedietly before serving. (I don't add heavy cream to this recipe every time I make it but it makes it nice and smooth.)
