This soup is a fall and winter favorite as a first course for our special Friday night dinners

Simple Leek Soup
Serves 4
  • 2-3 leeks, white & light green portions only
  • Purified water
  • Salt
  • 1/2 C whole milk or cream
  • Pepper
  • Optional: chives or thinly sliced green onions
  1. Split leeks halfway down the middle and rinse well.
  2. Slice leeks into about 1/2” slices. 
  3. Place into sauce pan and add enough water to cover.
  4. Bring to a boil.  Reduce heat and simmer 20 minutes.
  5. Using an immersion blender, blend until smooth.  (If using a traditional blender, blend in small batches to avoid getting burned.) 
  6.  Add milk or cream.  Allow to warm but not boil as this will cause the milk to curdle. 
  7. Salt to taste. 
  8.  Serve.  Garnish with a drizzle of cream, chives and freshly ground pepper.
