Ingredients

  • 8 medium russet potatoes (cut into small pieces)
  • 2 medium leeks (cleaned and chopped)

  • 1 cube vegetable bouillon (Optional - I used the Rapunzel brand)
  • 2 tbsp. onion powder
  • 1 tbsp. garlic powder
  • 2 tsp. herbs de provence (found in the spice aisle)
  • 1 tsp. dried marjoram
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Saute' the leeks in the olive oil until they become very soft and a little translucent.

  2. In a large soup pot, combine the cooked leeks, chopped potatoes, chicken broth, bouillon cube, onion powder, garlic powder, herbs de provence and marjoram.

  3. Bring to a rolling boil and reduce heat to medium. Stir frequently.

  4. Cook until the potatoes are completely soft and mushy. (As if you were making mashed potatoes)

  5. Remove the pot from heat.

  6. Blend the entire thing until smooth, using a hand blender (this is the cleanest and easiest method), or by transferring everything from the pot to a blender.

  7. NOTE: This is a thick soup. If you want a thinner soup, simply add more chicken stock.
