Potato Leek Soup

I’m keeping lunches simple this week. This means a big pot of soup.  Isa Does It Potato Leek Soup is a limited ingredient, fast cooking soup that serves 8.  Compared to most of Isa’s recipes this is pretty basic, but sometimes that’s just what you want.  It is also probably one of the cheapest meals to throw together on a budget.

The most time consuming part of this soup is cleaning the leeks.  Once cleaned you get them cooking; I sautéed with splashes of water to omit the olive oil from the recipe. IMG_5932

After the leeks cooked down add the potatoes, broth and seasoning.

IMG_5939Simple as it may look and sound, this soup is rich with flavor.  It has a wonderful texture and the creaminess makes it seem hardy and indulgent.  I topped with fresh ground pepper and served with a Wasa sourdough cracker (they’re oil free!) for some crunch.  As the number of servings warned this recipe makes a lot (much more than you would think from 2 pounds of potatoes and 1 leek); I froze what was left after packing this week’s work lunches.
