It’s been cold, blustery and wet for the most part lately, so it’s fitting that this week’s post features a warm and comforting soup. It’s also a versatile soup – the full title of this recipe is Leek and Potato Soup, Smooth or Chunky, Hot or Cold. Dorie gives a number of suggestions for variations and this soup could easily act as a base for many more. I chose to try one of the variations and added a handful of shredded spinach to mine near the end of the cooking time. Then, I partially pureed the soup and served it hot.
As with many of Dorie’s recipes, this soup was delicious and impressive without being time-consuming or difficult. I was able to get quite a bit of my Christmas baking done while the soup cooked slowly on the stove. I’m looking forward to the leftovers tonight.
I’ll keep this post short today, so we can all get back to baking. A very merry Christmas to those of you who celebrate it and I’ll see you again on Tuesday.
We’re doing things a little differently again for the month of December. We’re still posting weekly, but people are free to post this month’s recipes in any order. You can find many other blogged descriptions of this month’s FFWD recipes here: LYL: December 24
