Hello,
Here is my easy potato and leek soup recipe.

 

My cupboard ingredients for 4-6 servings

4 large potatoes

1 large leek or 2 medium leeks

1 chicken broth cube

800 ml of water

Salt (again I like to use Guérande’s pure sea salt)

 

  1. Bring water to a boil with a pinch of salt and the chicken broth cube
  2. When boiling add the chopped potatoes and sliced leeks
  3. Lower the temperature so that it simmers for 45 minutes
  4. When ready, mix well with a hand mixer

If it is to eat as a full meal I recommend to serve the soup with one or two cheese-grilled toasts (a nice country multi-grain bread will do the trick topped with cheddar or mozzarella) on the side.

Enjoy!

Oh and sorry about the dirty looking stove, the soup has kind of been over flowing for the past 25 minutes, oops, just reduced the heat.  A good scrubbing awaits for me!
