Potato and Leek Soup#FantasticalFoodFight

It’s time for Fantastical Food Fight headed up by Sarah Ellis at Fantastical Sharing.   Since it's Julia Child's birthday today, Sarah asked us to prepare a Julia Child recipe.
 For this  recipe, made just a small change, instead of adding salt in the soup used a veg stock cube. Rest of the recipe is ditto her's.
Serves 2

1 Teaspoon Heaped Butter
1  Leek  - sliced thinly
3 Medium Potatoes - peeled  & thinly sliced
3  Cups Water
1 Veg Stock Cube or Salt to taste
Black Pepper  powder to taste

Melt butter in a pot / saucepan over medium heat. Add the leek and saute for  a minute.  Add the potatoes, stock cube and water,  Place the lid on, simmer for 25 to 30 minutes or until potato is very soft.
Take  off flame and let it cool a little .  Then with a stick blender , blend until  for a second or two.  This soup should be grainy, thick and not smooth or liquidy.  
Serve it with a dash  pepper and enjoy this simple yet delicious soup.

Happy Home-maker and culinary enthusiast.


  1. Potato Leek soup is so classically French. Great choice to honor Julia.

  2. I love potato leek soup! Yours is simply gorgeous.

  3. I almost made this soup...almost, but I went with the hollandaise instead and see how that turned out for me :P I love leeks and don't make near enough recipes with them. I hope to try this one very soon. Thanks for joining in!
