Here is a soup we've made a few times during this harvest season. I used all of our potatoes from our garden and leek from our family farm - grown by my step sister. It's so yummy and a little bit naughty! :)
- 1 cup butter
- 2 leeks, sliced
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 quart chicken broth
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 4 cups Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and diced
- 2 cups heavy cream
- In a large pot over medium heat, melt butter. Cook leeks in butter with salt and pepper until tender, stirring frequently, about 15 minutes.
- Stir cornstarch into broth and pour broth into pot. Add the potatoes and bring to a boil. Season with salt and pepper. Pour in the cream, reduce heat and simmer at least 30 minutes, until potatoes are tender. Season with salt and pepper before serving.
