Kosher Samurai’s Leek and Potato Soup

September 26, 2011

My children had just learned about leeks and were very excited to see two large bunches in the kitchen. They had been told that it was used for making leek and potato soup, and they really wanted me to make that.

I just needed one bunch for my Rosh Hashana leek fritters, so I agreed to use the remaining bunch for soup. After a quick Google search, I settled on a recipe from the fairly new blog, Kosher Samurai.

It was easy, it was delicious, it was polished off in no time. The taste is rather like potato kugel. And I mean that in the best possible way.

Kosher Samurai says that this tried and true recipe also freezes perfectly–just thaw overnight in the fridge and reheat gently over a low flame.

And the recipe is easy to remember: 1 onion, 2 cloves garlic, 3 leeks, 4 potatoes, and 5 cups broth. Easy as 1, 2, 3, 4, 5!
