Bavarian Potato Leek Soup

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by greksgirl

I found this on a copy-cat site and its the best I've found so far. I use a potato masher right before serving to make it creamier but with some chunks of potato. You could also use an immersion/stick blender if you like it really smooth. (I also like it served cold)

Delicious! This wonderful soup goes together very quickly and easily. I used red potatoes (I left the skins on), and 4 large leeks from my garden. I coarsely mashed the potatoes before serving, leaving the soup chunky. I served the leftovers cold the next day and my family really liked it that way, too. Thank you for sharing this easy, delicous recipe. *Made for Spring 2010 PAC*
