Cozy and comforting, Potato Leek Soup combines potatoes, leeks and broth for a simple homemade soup the whole family will love!

Ingredients

  • 4 medium leeks (dark green stems removed)
  • 1/2 large white onion (chopped)
  • 2 medium russet potatoes (peeled and cut into cubes)
  • 1 tablespoon flour (use AP gluten free flour for GF)
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 4 cups chicken stock (use vegetable broth for vegetarians)
  • 1/2 cup 2% milk
  • salt and fresh pepper

Instructions

  • Wash leeks very carefully to remove all grit. I usually cut them horizontally and separate the rings to make sure no dirt remains. Coarsely chop them when washed.
  • In a medium soup pot, melt butter and add flour on low flame.
  • Using a wooden spoon, mix well. This will thicken your soup and give it a wonderful flavor.
  • Add chicken stock, leeks, onion, potatoes and bring to a boil.
  • Cover and simmer on low for about 20-25 minutes, until potatoes are soft.
  • Using an immersion blender, blend the soup until smooth adding the milk and adjusting salt and pepper to taste.
  • Serve immediately.
