Feel good food is definitely in need right now. Cause you know why??? BOYS SUCK! Thats why I am so glad it is Independence Day!!
But other than that life is quite lovely right now. 😀 I was inspired by Miss Julie after seeing her leeks at the JFX farmers market last Sunday and I have been rereading Julie & Julia (and this was her first julia attempt!). This recipe is so simple and incredibly delicious and savory.
4 leeks, white and green parts, thoroughy cleaned and sliced into semi small cuts
5 white potatoes, scrubbed and peeled and chopped into 1/2 inch pieces
2 cans chicken stock
2/3 cup heavy cream
some nutmeg, white pepper and at least 1 tbsp of salt!
Add leeks and potatoes to big pot, add chicken stock and 4 cups of water and salt. Boil and then simmer, partly covered for 45 minutes. Mash up veggies with potato masher and then in two rounds, blenderize the soup until nice and smooth. Add half of the cream to each batch while in the blender and pulse again! Serve in bowl and top with nutmeg and fresh ground white pepper. Serve with fresh baguette!
