Recipe by fshpiler

This recipe came from Cooking Light Magazine and has been rated highly. It is a light recipe - no cream, no milk. Yukon gold potatoes are the key ingredient to give the soup rich, buttery flavor. This makes a generous amount, so share the bounty with friends or freeze half of the batch for a future meal.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375°.
  2. Peal and cube the potatoes.
  3. Melt butter or olive oil (for a vegan recipe) in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add leek; cook 10 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally (do not brown).
  4. Add potatoes, water, salt, broth, and 2 thyme sprigs. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer, uncovered, 20 minutes or until potatoes are very tender.
  5. Remove pan from heat; discard thyme sprigs. Partially mash potatoes with a potato masher; stir in cream (or sour cream or Tofu cream for a Vegan Recipe.) Sprinkle with black pepper.
