Potato Leek Soup

I am on a huge soup kick at the moment. It’s easy and I can make enough for a few meals. You can serve soup as a main meal or with a salad or sandwich. I’ve just dug up massive amounts of potatoes from my garden recently and thought what a great way to use them – make Potato Leek Soup.potato leek soup logo

  Ingredients

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons of unsalted butter

3 pounds leeks, white and light green parts only, sliced

1 medium onion diced

4 garlic cloves diced

2 slices of turkey bacon

2 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and diced

3 sprigs of fresh rosemary

½  cup organic greek yogurt

6 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth

Salt & Pepper to taste

Green onions or chives – optional

Directions

1.      Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add diced bacon until starting to brown then add butter, leeks, onion, garlic, rosemary, salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until very tender but not brown, 20 to 30 minutes.

2.     Add potatoes and broth to the pot. Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are very tender, 10 to 15 minutes.

3.     When the potatoes are tender, remove from the heat. Puree the soup with an immersion blender or in batches in a regular blender. Add the ½ cup of greek yogurt and blend again. Season with more salt and pepper if need be. Once you have divided the soup into bowls you can top with a teaspoon full of yogurt and garish with green onions or chives if you choose to.
