Thick Potato and Leek Soup (Minus the Cream)

Ingredients to make Thick Potato and Leek Soup (Minus the Cream)

  • 5 medium sized potatoes
  • 5 small green onions (or 3 leeks)
  • 6 - 7 garlic cloves
  • 1 celery stalk
  • 2 tbsps oil
  • 1/2 tsp pepper powder
  • 1 heaped tsp mixed herbs
  • 1 cube chicken or vegetable stock
  • 3 cups or less water
  • 2 tbsps (Boiled and shredded chicken or diced veggies)
  • 2 tsps (herbed or plain)butter
  • Salt to taste

How to make Thick Potato and Leek Soup (Minus the Cream)

  1. De-skin the potatoes and pressure cook them, until soft and mashable (3 whistles and a 10 minutes on simmer). In a separate pan lightly fry chopped green onions (or leeks) and celery until the onions loose their raw smell.
  2. Next add in roughly chopped garlic, saute till it emits a lovely aroma. Add in your favourite herbs and saute for a minute more.
  3. Turn off the heat and allow it to cool. Next blend all the ingredients of the pan and the boiled potatoes along with a little water, till it comes to a pour able consistency.
  4. Transfer the contents of the blender back to the pan, add in a tsp of herbed (or plain) butter, add in the stock cube and the remaining water and allow to bubble till the soup comes to your desired level of thickness.
  5. Transfer to soup bowls. Garnish with pepper powder, finely chopped leeks and shredded chicken or diced vegetables of your choice. Serve with croutons, bread sticks or veggie sticks.

My Tip:

You can easily customize this soup as per your preference, I added a little shredded chicken as I like its texture with soup. Traditionally potato soup is had with fried bacon. The onions and veggies are then fried in the bacon grease. This is then topped with a generous amount of cream. I however wanted a healthy version, hence have omitted the bacon and cream. I also suggest lightly tossing a slice of bread cut lengthwise in garlic butter to make the croutons, these dipped in the soup will guaranteed make you go yum. Add in a little salt if the butter doesn't cut it for you.
