A recipe that I had in one of my recipe boxes that I think my mom gave to me many years ago. I'm posting this so I have it handy to try.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large soup kettle heat oil. Saute leeks and garlic until softened but not brown.
  2. Add carots, potato and enough liquid to barely cover. Simmer about 30 minutes until vegetables are soft.
  3. Puree soup in a blender (or use an immersion blender) and return to pot. Add remaining liquid to your desired thickness. Mix well and heat through.
  4. Serve hot with croutons.

Mama smurf, if you haven't tried this yet, you must real soon. This is absolutely delicious and I will make this a lot. The only deliberate change I made to it was to use a "sweet potato" versus a "potato". Thank you so much! Made for Aussie-Kiwi Recipe Swap #82.
