Leek Soup


[socialring]

Growing up I was always thrilled when my dad would make leek soup. For everyone in the family it was a delicious treat and he could never make enough. Every time he would make more and more but the leftovers would disappear faster than free tickets to the Super Bowl. He kept buying a bigger pot but it was never enough!

This is a really special recipe for me and I’m sure you will discover a similar taste for a truly fantastic soup and the bonus is that it is an amazing gluten free recipe you and the entire family can enjoy!

Instructions
  1. Drizzle a small amount of olive oil into a large soup pot and warm at medium heat.
  2. Add the leeks and add a desired amount of salt and pepper. Cook for around 15 minutes until the leeks have become soft, be sure to keep an eye on it and gently stir.
  3. Add your diced potatoes and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Slowly add enough water until the potatoes are just submersed.
  5. Cover and bring it to a simmer. Lower the heat and continue to simmer until the potatoes are tender. Use a fork to test. This should take about 40 minutes.
  6. In the mean time you can quickly fry the bacon.
  7. When bacon is done, remove grease with a paper towel and then chop it into small pieces (You can also use pre-cooked bacon or bacon bits. Read the label to ensure they are gluten free).
  8. Add the bacon to the soup pot.
  9. Stir in the milk and return to a low heat while gently stirring. Taste test to determine if you would like to add more salt or pepper.
