DIRECTIONS

  • Prep the leeks before you begin--trim and discard the roots and the dark green leaves; slice the trimmed leeks in half lengthwise, then slice; rinse the cut leeks thoroughly to remove dirt and sand.
  • Bring broth, potatoes, thyme, bay leaves, and 1/2 teaspoon salt t a boil, covered, in a large saucepan.
  • Decrease heat to simmer, and continue to cook, covered until needed in step 5.
  • Meanwhile, melt butter in a large Dutch oven over med-high heat; stir in leeks, garlic, and 1/4 teaspoon salt; cover and cook until leeks are wilted and softened, about 10 minutes.
  • Stir in broth mixture; bring to simmer and cook until potatoes are tender, 4-7 minutes.
  • Off heat, remove bay leaves and mash some of the potatoes against side of pot to thicken soup to desired consistency.
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve.
