Wednesday's Recipe - Leek and Potato Soup

Oops! A day late again. I started the RWA PRO 50K Challenge this week and added a critique partner to my line-up, so yesterday was 150 pages of critiquing plus my normal writing. I've also been tweaking my website this week--not an easy task for the technically-challenged...

Here's another simple soup recipe to use more of those garden potatoes. :)

Leek and Potato Soup

3-4 large leeks, trimmed, sliced, and thoroughly rinsed (they tend to collect mud in the layers)
3 tablespoons margarine or butter
5-6 medium potatoes, scrubbed, quartered, and sliced
4 cups water
2 chicken bouillon cubes
1 tablespoon chopped chives

In a soup pot, saute leeks in margarine over medium-high heat until tender. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and cook for 30 minutes or until potatoes are soft, stirring occasionally. Makes 6-8 servings. Great with quiche, quesadillas, and grilled cheese sandwiches!

Back to work!
