Patchwork Potato Leek Soup

I love going to the Grandin Farmers Market on Saturdays buying what is in season and really enjoying the flavors of the season.  I also like when one vendor has all the key ingredients.  For the second week in a row, Patchwork Farm had potatoes and leeks.  It is a favorite here at our house and super easy to make. Melt some butter on medium, add a little salt and cut up the leeks. Cook those for about 10 minutes till they are soft.  I was making something else at the same time and had some extra onions so added those as well. IMG_1645

Once those are cooked down, add  1/2 cup of dry white wine.  Let that cook down a bit. I peel and cut up a pound of potatoes. I then add 3 cups of chicken broth,


Add a cup of milk or cream.  Simmer until the potatoes are “fork tender”.  I then take half of the mix and put in the blender (make sure you leave the top vented so you don’t pop the container) and blend till smooth.  I pour it back to the pan.  Then mix up the second half.


Pour the second batch back in pan, stir and let it cook for another minute or two.  Serve it up with a little parm or any other cheese you have on hand.


I make this once a week while the leeks and potatoes are available at the market!  Thanks again Patchwork for what you do!
