Leek and Potato Soup

I got a big bunch of leeks from my food co-op yesterday and my DH grabbed me a bag of potatoes, so it's time to attempt my first leek and potato soup.


6-8 Potatoes, peeled & cut into pieces
1 large leek
2 ribs celery
2 carrots

I started with a pot of boiling salted water and put in some cubed peeled and cubed unpeeled potatoes. Should have cooked the unpeeled ones first so I could have pureed the soup easily before adding in the "chunky" veggies. Live and learn.

Anyway, cook the potatoes until they start to get soft, then add the washed and chopped leeks. Then puree after it's been cooking a while and the leeks are soft.

Toss in celery and carrots cut up small. Add S&P to taste. Since the water was already salted with a good tsp of salt, I didn't need any more.

That's it. Easy, simple, tasty, vegan even!
