Leek Potato Soup

This is a recipe that my mom-in-law makes. She picked it up in her favourite cooking show with French chef Paul Baucuse. It is easy to cook, quick to prepare and inexpensive. I have tried a couple of variations by replacing part of the leeks with other vegetables like carrots or squash or a mix of both. All turned out well. Some Wieners cut into cubes make a good meat addition.

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 3-4 leak stalks, washed and cut in thin stripes (discard the upper green parts)
  • 4 potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 1.5 l water
  • 2 tbsp. sour cream
  • 2 tbsp. parsley, minced.

Preparation

Sauté the leeks and the carrots in butter for 10 min. Add potatoes and water. Boil on high without the lid for 15 min. Season with salt and pepper. Add sour cream and blend everything with a hand blender. Sprinkle with parsley.
