Recipe by smellyvegetarian

Found this in an article about Jamie Oliver in the Jan/Feb 2010 Cooking Light, and I'm posting for safekeeping! Make this vegan by subbing in veggie broth!

I enjoyed this soup and appreciated that it was healthy. Not your typical cream leek potato soup, but it was nice and thick after blending. The flavor was very good. I may omit the carrot next time, just to keep it more potato/leek oriented. Thanks for posting. Made for ZWT8 Family Picks

  1. Remove roots, outer leaves, and tops from leeks. Cut each in half lengthwise, then crosswise into 1/2" slices. Immerse in cold water; swirl. Drain.
  2. Bring broth to a boil in a large saucepan over medium high heat.
  3. Heat oil in a large dutch oven over medium high heat. Add leek, onion, celery, carrot, and garlic. Partially cover, and cook 20 minutes. Stir occasionally.
  4. Add hot broth and potato; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer until potato is tender. Stir in pepper and salt.
  5. Serve chunky, or puree with an immersion blender.
