Only one caution, some blenders are not made for hot liquids, either due to the material of the blender container or the seal between the jar and the motor housing.

Creamy Potato Leek Soup

Blender Soup Recipes - Creamy Potato Leek Soup

Ingredients (Serves 4)

  • 2 shallots chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves chopped
  • 1 pound leeks
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 5 cups low sodium chicken stock (homemade is best)
  • 1 1/4 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes not peeled or Idaho potatoes peeled and diced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon white pepper
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream

Directions

  1. Peel thick-skinned potatoes or if using a thin-skinned potato like Yukon Gold omit the skinning step. Dice up the potatoes so they cook easily.
  2. Trim the green portions of the leek reserving about 1/3 to chop and include in the soup.
  3. Halve the white part of the leek lengthwise and rinse well. Make sure all the sand is removed! No one wants a gritty soup.
  4. Slice the keeps thinly and set aside with the chopped leek greens.
  5. Peel and finely chop both the garlic and the shallots.
  6. In a 5 qt. dutch oven or large soup pot, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the leeks, garlic, shallot, red pepper flakes, and white pepper to the butter. Cook until soft.
  7. Add the wine and bring to a boil for about 3 min. Add chicken stock and potatoes. Bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat and simmer until the potatoes are tender.
  8. Allow soup to cool before pureeing in the blender. In small batches puree the soup in a food processor or blender. Run the processed soup through a strainer to remove any chunks not blended.
  9. Return the soup to a pan to reheat. Once reheated, stir in cream and adjust the seasoning.
  10. Reserve a little cream to drizzle in the middle of the bowl right before serving.
