POTATO AND LEEK SOUP RECIPE

Ingredients:
3 large leeks, finely chopped
1 stick butter (113 g)
1 pound chopped potatoes
6 cups chicken or vegetable stock
1 bay leaf
salt and black pepper, to taste
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 tsp grated nutmeg
2 tbsp lemon juice

Preparation:
Melt the butter in a large pot, over medium-low heat. Add the leeks and saute for 10 minutes, until softened. Season with salt and black pepper. It's important to cook leeks on low heat, because you don't want them to brown.

Add the potatoes, chicken stock and bay leaf. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low and let it simmer for 15 minutes, or until potatoes are fork tender.

Fish out the bay leaf. Blend the potatoes and leeks into a creamy soup, using an immersion blender.

Finish the soup with heavy cream, grated nutmeg and lemon juice. Stir well to combine.

Serve with oat croutons, sliced green onions or crumbled crispy bacon.
