How to make it

  • In a large heavy saucepan cook the leeks and garlic in the butter with salt and pepper to taste, covered, over moderately low heat, stirring occasionally, for 8 to 10 minutes, or until they are softened but not browned. Add the water, the broth, the wine, and the potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch dice, and simmer the mixture, covered, for 30 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender. In a blender, puree 3-4 cups of the soup, stir the puree into the remaining soup with the parsley, and season the soup with salt and pepper. Pour into bowls and garnish with the chives. Serve with hunks of crusty bread or in a bread bowl (see picture).
  • Feel free to experiment with other veggies too, like parsnips, turnips or carrots.

    Thanks Darbar. I followed your recipe strictly and it came out delicious. I made the bread bowls too and it really gave nice touch to the servings. My family gave me five stars. So I give it to you too. It is easy to make, delicious and appropriate for vegetarians too. Making the bread bowls takes some time, but it pays off when you see cheerful faces at the table.

    Hey thanks Mserge! That's a great idea to try sweet potatoes. I'll try that next time! Thanks!

    This was really great! I used Grey Monk White Wine, it worked wonderfully with the soup, I did have to season it quite a lot however in the end it was so tasty. I would have used sweet potatoes for an even more delicate taste. All in all great recipe thanks!

    That's odd Aubreeu, I never get a strong wine flavor when I make it. What kind of wine did you use? I guess you could always cut back on the amount of wine and replace it with either broth, water or cream.

    I liked the idea of a Leek and Potato soup made without cream, but was disappointed with how strong the wine flavor was in this recipe. It was still a good soup, just not what I was expecting.

    Wow, I love this soup, and I really love that it is made without the addition of cream - gotta watch those calories some place!! Nice picture - will be making this when Chicagoland cools off again...
