How to make it

  • Cut the leeks length-wize and then across to form 1 inch pieces.
  • Use mostly the white part of the leek.
  • Put the cut pieces in a large bowl or two of water to clean out any dirt drain and rinse.
  • Mince the garlic.
  • Place oil in a large skillet or pot over medium heat.
  • Add the leeks, potatoes, carrots and the garlic, salt and pepper and let cook for 10 minutes stirring from time to time.
  • Add the stock, jalepeno, bay leaf, thyme, wine and one dill sprig.
  • Bring this to a boil and then turn heat to low and simmer for 30-40 minutes.
  • Test potatoes to see if soft and if so, turn off the heat and let sit for 15 minutes uncovered.
  • Remove the bay leaf and let cool a little.
  • Then puree the soup in a blender or food processor.
  • Add back to the pot and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Garnish with the remaining dill(minced) and add yogurt dollop on top if desired.
