after running 10K on saturday, i decided that yesterday was going to be a rest day for me and boy did i rest. i did absolutely nothing for most of the day. ZERO! ZIP! LAYYY-ZzzzEEE! i started to feel a bit guilty watching the dust bunnies fight for space under the sofa so i…did not vacuum! instead i decided to make a delicious soup.
after rummaging around the fridge to see what i had in there…not much as i was so lazy i hadn’t even shopped for food, i saw a leek poking out of the crisper and cream???<—i never have cream but my sister was over and i had to get some for her coffee i looked in the pantry and there were potatoes…some had eyes ah-ha said self, potato leek soup it is. if i were really lucky there would be some bacon in the freezer…yup, there was!
so i set about prepping for the soup and was feeling more productive (less lazy) already.
if you’re going to make this soup, here’s what you will need:
*3 potatoes(i used the equivalent in new red potatoes)
*2 cups cream
2 tbsp butter
2 cups stock (i used beef stock)
2-3 green onion- chopped
2 garlic cloves (i used crushed garlic)
2-3 bay leaves
sea salt and pepper
bring to a boil then reduce heat to a simmer and leave on until potatoes are cooked through.
as for the dust bunnies? well, they’re still under the sofa…after dinner i was back to lay-zzeeee and read a book all night!
let me know if you make this soup
