very easy

In a nutshell, you cook the potatoes, chop the leeks (perhaps pre-saute them, can't remember), throw it in the blender with milk, chicken stock, and a few other ingredients, blend until really fine, then heat through on the stove. Seriously, that's all!

Potato & Leek Soup

Found it! I think I'll make this tonight, now that I read it over again....

1/4 cup butter

Add to a large pot and melt over medium heat

3 leeks, finely chopped (only the bottom white/light green part, not the dark leaves)
1 onion, finely chopped

Add to pot and cover, allowing leeks and onion to soften in the butter at low-medium heat for about 5-10 minutes. This takes the sharpness out of the veggies.

3 cups water
2 chicken bullion cubes (like OXO)*
4 potatoes, diced
Salt, Pepper, and Nutmeg to taste (a pinch or so)

Add to the pot and bring to a boil, stirring frequently to ensure the bullion cubes fully dissolve. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until the potatoes are soft - about 20-30 minutes.

1 cup milk or light cream (cream adds richness)

Add milk and stir through, but do not allow to boil again. Using a hand blender (like a Cuisinart Smart Stick) right in the pot, or in stages using a regular pitcher-style blender, puree the soup until you get an even texture.

Top with freshly chopped chives or parsley if desired and serve immediately.

*Swap 2 cups of fresh chicken stock (preserved or homemade) for the 2 OXO cubes and 2 cups of the water (that means you only have to add 1 extra cup of water to make up for the original 3 cups of liquid).

So good!
