It’s fall and the weather has taken a turn. We are changing the things we do and the food we eat. It’s time to fill our tummies with warm, simple, comfort foods. Soups are the perfect dinner solution. Not only are they super simple to make, they fill your home with warmth.
This classic potato and leek soup needs only three ingredients and is ready in about 30 minutes. Feed your little hockey player, your hiking companions, your apple pickers a big bowl of fall flavours.
Potato and Leek Soup
2 leeks, chopped and cleaned (about 3 cups)
3 tbsp vegetable oil
4 yukon gold potatoes, peeled and chopped (about 4 cups)
4 cups chicken stock
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
Prepare the leeks by first chopping them and then soaking them in a bowl of cold water. This is the easiest way to ensure that all the dirt is removed from between each layer.
Once potatoes are soft carefully transfer soup to blender…use a ladle to transfer soup one scoop at a time. Puree the soup in the blender. Alternately, puree with soup with a handheld emersion blender. Again, be very careful as the soup is hot.
