Our new puppy has been keeping me really busy. I’ve been doing a fair amount of cooking at the new house but sticking to old favorites I know I can make quickly. Last night I branched out and made potato leek soup for the first time.
I used this recipe from the Vegetarian Times. It was my first time using leeks so I was glad the Internet is full of cooking websites happy to instruct me in the proper cleaning and cutting of leeks.
Robbie and I really liked this rich, creamy soup. It wasn’t difficult to make so I would definitely make it again. I used nearly three medium potatoes, skipped the lemon, added some ground pepper, and ended up using about 3 3/4 cups of vegetable broth total. I continue to be a huge proponent of the hand blender which I used here and, I believe, made the recipe infinitely easier.
