(easy) recipe of the week: potato leek soup

i got this recipe from a friend
(actually, a former teacher of mine)
and filed it away at least a year ago
for the future

when trying to come up with an idea to feed my husband, one of his good friends and myself one friday
i decided to pull it out and see what happened.

the result?
it'll be a regularly made soup in our house
i think next time i'll make a double batch to freeze some

very simple
very light
nice texture
great flavor

potato leek soup

3 large potatoes, peeled and chopped into quarters or smaller
6 cups chicken broth
4 medium leeks, trimmed
2/3 cup sour cream
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
fresh chives for garnish

cook potatoes in the broth and salt & pepper until tender
add leeks and season again with salt and pepper
cook until leeks and potatoes are very tender
put everything in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth

add the sour cream on top and drag into a design with a fork.  add fresh chives to top
serve warm or's yummy either way!  enjoy :-)
