This is a quick and easy soup which can be had at any time of the year. Potato is perennially available. So whenever you get leek, this is a healthy and wonderful combination.
Thick creamy soup


Potato has been made infamous as a fattening food. However, it is packed with carbs and de-stressing nutrients. If not fried, potato is harmless. Leek belongs to the onion and garlic family and adds a mild flavor to the dish. It is high in fiber and very low in calories. So it can make you feel full without the calories. Both these ingredients together give a thick and creamy texture to the soup.

Serves: 2
Preparation Time: 5 min
Cooking Time: 10-15min

Ingredients:
1 large potato, washed and cubed
1 leek
1-2 cloves garlic
1 tsp oil
2-3 cups broth or water
Salt and Pepper, to taste


Method:
Cut the green part and the root part of the leek. Only the middle white stalk is edible. Cut rings and wash well.

Take oil in a pan. Add chopped garlic, leek rings and potato cubes. Saute well


Add broth (you can use vegetable or chicken broth) or water. Alternatively, dilute a stock cube in a 2tbsp hot water and add.


Add salt. Cover and let the potatoes cook.

Allow the mixture to cool. Then transfer to a blender and make a smooth puree


Transfer back to the pan. Check salt. Season with pepper.


Enjoy hot soup.
