Cream is added to potatoes and leeks cooked in chicken broth in this simple, easy-to-prepare soup.
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 6 potatoes, peeled and cubed
- 1 (14.5 ounce) can chicken broth
- 2 leeks, chopped
- 2 teaspoons margarine
- 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
In a medium pot over medium heat, combine the potatoes and broth and allow to simmer for 20 minutes, or until potatoes are tender.
In a separate skillet over medium heat, saute the leeks in the butter or margarine for 5 to 10 minutes, or until tender. Add the leeks and the cream to the potatoes and stir well. (Note: This is the point I like to take a potato masher and slightly thicken the soup.)
