in the winter, as it get cold and you get your first cold, all you want is a bowl of soup. so, i decided to make soup for the first time, one of my favorites - creamy leek and potato soup. no surprise, it's another food and wine recipe. i am just loving that magazine lately. best of all, it was a fairly simple recipe, too. i mean, just look at the ingredients.
aaaaand chicken stock. that's it! not too bad. i halved the recipe since i'd be the only one eating it. long distance relationships are fun!
after sautéing the leeks, you add in the potatoes and chicken, bring to a boil, then simmer. and then comes the good part - adding in the cream.
after simmering for about ten more minutes, you puree the soup in a food processor and there you have it - a creamy bowl of soup. a good way to stay warm on a winter night.
