Potato Leek Soup III
April 06, 2007

I LOVE this recipe. I do make some changes: I use half the butter and half and half instead of cream. I add garlic and onion (I like spring onion) or shallot while cooking the leeks. I don't usually put them in at the beginning but cut them while the leeks are cooking and add them as soon as I am done preparing them. I add some white wine towards the end of the 15 minutes of cooking the leeks and let it cook off. When I add the broth, I also add cayenne and ground mustard. Finally, I use one sweet potato along with any other potatoes I have on hand. I love the sweet flavor it adds. I also use my potato masher at the end to mush it all a little bit for a creamier soup.
