For the past few months, I've been branching out, trying to sample foods I have never had before. Some things I find that I love, and others... not so much. I remember watching Rachel Ray use leeks in a lot of her recipes, and for some reason, the name just immediately turned me off. Nothing good is ever associated with a leak, so let's just skip that. But, in my recent quest to expand my palate, I recently decided to give them a try. I came across this Irish Potato Leek Soup on Golden Blossom Honey that piqued my curiosity. I love all things Irish (even married into an Irish family) so, why not give it a try?
The leek and potato mixture was a winner! However, I'm not sure I am a huge fan of the pureed consistency of the soup. Yes, I know that's how it's served, but maybe next time I'll puree just the leeks with the rest of the ingredients and throw the potatoes in last for a chunkier soup. Overall, it's a great soup to warm up with on a cold winter day!
Ingredients1 pound leeks, root ends and tops trimmed
3 Tablespoons butter
1 pound golden potatoes, peeled and chopped
1 Tablespoon GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY
