Why I Love This Recipe

This soup is traditionally eaten chilled, but my family just can't "do" cold soup.... so we eat it hot and everybody loves it.

Ingredients You'll Need

3 leeks (about 1 lb)
½ cup chopped onion
3 large peeled & cubed potatoes
½ tsp teaspoon salt
a dash of white pepper
2 (14 oz) cans of chicken broth
2 cups milk
2 tablespoons of butter


Trim leeks, wash well & slice 1/4 inch thick.

Melt butter in large saucepan & saute leeks & onions until soft. Do not brown.

Add all ingredients except milk & simmer until potatoes are soft & mushy.

Drain thru colander, reserving all liquid.

With blender or mixer, puree potato mixture until smooth.

Reassemble liquid & potato mixture. Add milk and heat thru before serving.
