POTATO AND LEEK SOUP

Potato and Leek Soup

Think it's a soup kind of day... Going to try this minus the leeks... maybe some Bacon... YUM.

2 tablespoons butter
1 large onion, chopped
2 leeks, chopped
2 tablespoons flour
4 cups chicken stock
3 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed
salt and pepper to taste
1 cup low fat milk
Melt butter in saucepan over medium heat. Add onions and leeks, sauté gently until soft. Stir in flour and cook for 2 minutes. Gradually stir in stock.
Add potatoes, bring to the boil, simmer gently for 30-40 minutes or until potatoes are soft. Stir in milk and seasonings.

Puree soup in a blender. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Serves 6.
