Cream Of Leek and Potato Soup

3 cups sliced leeks, white/tender green parts
3 cups roughly-chopped peeled Russet potatoes
6 cups water
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup crème fraiche or sour cream
1/3 cup minced chives or parsley

In a large heavy saucepan, bring the leeks, potatoes, water, and salt to the boil over high heat. Cover partially, reduce heat, and simmer for 20 to 30 minutes until the vegetables are tender. Correct the seasoning, to taste, and puree with a handheld immersion blender, or in batches in a food processor.


Whisk in the cream and reheat before serving. Top each serving with a dollop of crème fraiche and sprinkling of fresh chives.


This recipe yields 6 servings.
