Soup season is here! One thing I love about making soup is that you can experiment all you want, you have very few chances to come out with something really bad ;-). Well, my last recipe experiment was this leek and potato soup flavored with blue cheese and I must say it did taste good! It’s a very easy to make recipe that doesn’t need much work on your part. You just heat the leek and potatoes with water and mix everything together… How simple is that?! If blue cheese’s taste is too strong for you, replace it with cream cheese.
Preparation time: 10 mn – Cooking time: 40 mn
Ingredients (for 4 servings)
2 large potatoes
5 cups (120 cl) of water
0.7 oz (20g) of blue cheese (a little more if you want some left for decoration)
3 tablespoons of whipping cream
1/ Peel and wash potatoes.
2/ Peel leek by taking off the outside leaves and cutting off both the spoiled end on the green side and the roots on the white side. Wash thoroughly to take off soil that can be left inside.
3/ Peel onion and take off roots on the bottom end.
4/ Heat water in a casserole over medium heat.
5/ Slice leek, cut potatoes into 4 pieces and pour into the water along with the entire onion. Add salt and leave covered for 40 minutes.
6/ Mix together whipping cream and blue cheese.
7/ Liquidize soup and combine it with blue cheese cream. You can add half first, try it and decide how much more blue cheese flavor you wish to add. Season with salt if needed.
