Leek and Potato (or Cauliflower) Soup

3-4 leeks, cleaned like Cassie described, and sliced thin

3 medium potatoes, diced, OR one whole cauliflower broken into florets

2 ½ c chicken or vegetable stock

½ c cream, optional

plenty of salt and pepper

1Heat the butter in a soup pot and add the leeks. Saute over low heat until the leeks are very tender – give it 15 minutes or so.

2 Add the potato and stock. Bring to a boil and simmer for another 15 minutes or until the potato (or 10 min for cauliflower) is soft.

3 Blend the soup with cream, and salt and pepper to taste.

4 Garnish with chopped herbs.

5 This soup is simple and classic- but feel free to add seasonings of your choice.
