Here’s a sample recipe from Souperlicious
Leek and Potato
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
3 leeks, washed well (so all the dirt’s removed) and sliced
4 medium sized potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 teaspoon dried thyme
¼ teaspoon pepper
½ teaspoon salt
2 cups vegetable stock
In a large saucepan and over medium high heat, melt the butter and add the leeks and potatoes.
Stir well so the vegetables get coated with the butter and then add the salt, pepper and thyme.
Cook for about 5 minutes until the seasonings get incorporated into the leeks and potatoes.
Slowly add the vegetable stock and simmer for about 20 minutes.
Take the pan off the heat and let the mixture cool and then put it into a blender and pulverize it.
Return to the saucepan and reheat. Serve immediately.
