Leek Soup

Can we come over our prejudices and enjoy that once was loathed? Let’s make a delicious leek soup to see the power of onions!

As I most recently have a little time, I had been surfing on the web the other day. Trying to get new, stirring tips, inspirational meals that I’ve never tested before, to impress my loved ones with. Looking for quite some time but could not come across lots of interesting things. Right before I thought to give up on it, I stumbled on this tempting and simple dessert simply by chance. It looked so fabulous on its pic, it called for urgent actions.

It was easy to imagine just how it is created, its taste and how much my hubby will enjoy it. Actually, it is extremely easy to please the guy in terms of desserts. Yes, I’m a lucky one. Or possibly he is.Anyways, I visited the page: Suncakemom and simply used the simple instuctions that have been coupled with great images of the method. It just makes life much simpler. I could imagine that it is a slight effort to take photographs in the middle of baking in the kitchen as you most often have gross hands so I seriously appreciate the effort and time she devote to build this post and recipe easily followed.

Having said that I’m inspired presenting my very own dishes in a similar way. Thanks for the concept.

I was fine tuning the main formula create it for the taste of my loved ones. I can mention it turned out an incredible success. They enjoyed the flavor, the structure and enjoyed getting a treat like this in the middle of a hectic workweek. They quite simply wanted lots more, a lot more. Thus the next time I am not going to make the same mistake. I am gonna double the amount to keep them happy.

The Leek Soup originally is from SunCakeMom

Cut the leek into 4 parts along the long side without cutting it all the way through the end where the roots are. Rinse the leek and remove the roots too.

Remove the dried and the tough looking thick green bits too. Keep the light green looking tender parts.

Slice the leek up finely.

Heat oil in a pan and on high heat saute the sliced up leek until it collapses to about half of its size for about 3-5 minutes. We can use many more additional vegetables like cauliflower, broccoli, brussels sprouts or carrots. Mind that most vegetables needs 5 – 10 minutes sauteing time so start with those and only when they are tender enough, add the leek.

Fill the pan up with the broth. If we haven’t got our homemade broth or leftover chicken soup ready, just use some sort of ready made stock or even water with bouillon cubes.

Bring it to boil and add the cream. Let the flavors settle for a couple of minutes before serving.
