Leeks and onions sweated in butter are simmered in chicken broth with thinly sliced potatoes in this smooth soup with heavy cream. Serve cold.

INGREDIENTS (for 5 servings):


  • Gently sweat the chopped leeks and the chopped onion in butter or margarine until soft, about 8 minutes. Do NOT let them brown.
  • Add potatoes and stock to the saucepan. Salt and pepper to taste; do not overdo them! Bring to the boil, and simmer very gently for 30 minutes.
  • Puree in a blender or food processor until very smooth. Cool. Gently stir in a swirl of heavy cream.
