White Cheddar Potato Leek Soup
I was able to leave work early today, so I decided to put on a pot of soup. I have to say, this might be one of the best soup recipes I have come across. Here is how to whip it up....
3 Tbsp butter
2 cups chopped leeks (white part only)
2 lbs of potatoes quartered
1 qt. broth
8 oz of shredded white cheddar
5 tbsp sour cream
salt, pepper, and cayenne
In pot, melt butter over medium. Add leeks 2 min. Add potatoes for 5 min. Add broth and bring to a boil. simmer until fork-tender, 15 min approx. Remove 3/4 the potatoes. Add the potatoes to blender with 1 cup water and puree. Add back to rest of soup and add cheese and 3 tbsp sour cream. Garnish soup with a dab of sour cream and cayenne.
Note: I added cracked pepper and salt to add a bit more flava!
