French Fridays with Dorie: Leek and Potato Soup

10 Dec

Dorie is right, this is a simple soup to make. Leeks and potato cooked in chicken broth and milk. The soup came together in under an hour and it was very satisfying. I followed the recipe except for the potatoes, I used 2 instead of 1. I wanted to have some potato chunks in my soup but I also wanted a smooth soup. So when the soup was done, I scooped out some potatoes before hitting it with my immersion blender. I also made my own croutons because I happen to have a stale bun in the bread bin.

From this:

to this in 40 minutes:

Bon appetit!

This recipe can be found in Dorie Greenspan‘s Around My French Table.

    The soup looks really good. A good idea to add extra potato, giving the soup a richer and yummier taste! Thank you for your email! Will be making this as a surprise for my sis!

    Hey, my mom just made stir fry leek with siu yuk. I was thinking of the leek and potato soup with wild rice recipe … and I chanced on your leek soup. Looks pretty good. Might try it.
