Potato Leek Soup

I never actually cooked with leeks before creating this soup recipe and bt-dubs leeks smell amazing!!! 

WHAT YOU NEED:

  • 2 Leeks
  • 7 Yukon potatoes (or more)
  • 1/4 Cup fresh parsley 
  • Vegetable broth (If you don’t have veggie broth you can make your own using any soup mix of your choice. I used a combo of onion soup mix and chicken soup mix)
  • 1 Tsp Basil
  • 2 Tsp garlic powder
  • Salt n Pep

Start by getting the leeks ready. Slice off the tough green part on top and cut the leek lengthwise and wash it thoroughly between the layers. Chop them both up and rinse, again. Sauté the leek in butter or olive oil, until soft. Add broth or water until it is an inch above cooked leek. Then add the chopped potatoes and spices, leaving out the fresh parsley. Bring to a boil, lower heat to medium and cook until potatoes are basically soft, around 25 minutes. Add the parsley and cook for 5-10 minutes. You can serve this chunky, but I blended it slightly so its a thick consistency with a few chunks, as well. This was a really hearty soup that can add a lot to your meal!
