I tweeted a little earlier that I was making this soup from a recipe I got from my CSA, and wanted to see how it turned out before posting the recipe. I am slurping it up right now! (I couldn't wait for dinner.) So here it is and it's super easy!
Potato Leek Soup
1/2 cup of butter (I used one stick of organic, salted butter)
1 lb. Kielbasa sausage, sliced 1/2 inch thick (I used regular sausage because that's what I had and it still tasted good... my sausage is from organic, free-range pigs!)
2 leeks sliced (This gives it all the flavor! I got these from my CSA)
salt and pepper to taste (Celtic Sea Salt is the healthiest)
1 quart chicken broth (I used Pacific's Organic Free-Range Chicken Broth but if you've got homemade from your last roasted chicken, then that would be better!)
1 tablespoon cornstarch
4 cups Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and diced
2 cups heavy cream (I used organic... if I had raw milk cream, that would be better. Don't even try to substitute 2% or Skim!)
1. In a large pot over medium heat, melt butter. Cook leeks and Kielbasa in butter with salt and pepper until tender, stirring frequently, about 15 minutes.
2. Stir (or wisk) cornstarch into broth and pour broth into pot. Add the potatoes and bring to a boil. Season with salt and pepper. Pour in the cream, reduce heat and simmer at least 30 minutes, until potatoes are tender. Season with salt and pepper before serving.
*if you wish to omit the sausage, just add a full cup of butter.
3. Enjoy! :D
