Leek and Potato Soup
- 1 Big Leek
- 1 red potato
- as much garlic as you want: think i'll use about 5 cloves. I really like garlic.
- 1 bay leaf
- salt and pepper
- carton of veggie stock plus some frozen, homemade chx stock
- large pinches dried oregano, sage, cumin
(note, if you're sad and have no immersion blender you can also allow the soup to cool some and blend it in batches in a regular blender. But this is messy, involves various bowls and dirty blenders and is difficult to avoid burning yourself. So do yourself a favor and go buy an immersion blender. It will be an investment you will make you jump for joy every time you use it, which will be often.)
Serve with a little more salt, and maybe some bacon bits if you're feeling decadent. I again forgot to take a picture of the final product, much to my post yummy meal chagrin, but here's what i got:
Ingredients all added.
Simmering for an hour + pre blended.
The final product is a nice, creamy looking soup. The potato thickens it a bit. I might add an onion next time to add a little more bite/sweetness.
