About this recipe: It's the best potato and leek soup I've ever had. A modification of a recipe I first tried at my dear friend Sonja's house.
This soup was easy to make and tasted excellent. I followed the recipe, basically, with a few additions/changes. I notice that while it says to cook the onion, there isn't butter listed in the ingredients. I used about 2T to cook (but not brown) the onions, leeks, and celery. I had broccoli to use up, so added a head of broccoli, chopped. Because of that, I increased the stock, probably adding about another litre or so. Once the potatoes and broccoli were in the pan, I just added stock so they were covered. I cooked for 15-20 minutes as directed. I added some bacon I had leftover too. I used a potato masher after the potatoes were cooked and added double cream as called for. I used more though because of adding broccoli, bacon and more stock. The soup was fantastic. I really liked the addition of broccoli and the bacon added to the flavour as well. I will make this again and highly recommend this recipe. I received rave reviews and yet it was so easy. Thank you for sharing your recipe. - 11 Apr 2013
