Ingredients Info:
  • leeks - cut off the green part of the leeks and use the white section
  • onion - choose a brown or yellow onion
  • butter - unsalted or salted butter is fine to use in this recipe
  • garlic - mince your own cloves of fresh garlic or use pre-minced garlic in a jar
  • potatoes - for best results choose a variety of potato that is suitable for cooking and mashing (ie. brushed potatoes). Peel and chop into large chunks.
  • chicken stock liquid - use store-bought liquid chicken stock or make your own by mixing 1 teaspoon of powder stock through every 1 cup of water. Alternatively, you can use your own homemade chicken stock paste.
  • cream - choose a cream that is suitable for heating (like a cooking cream or a thickened cream).
More Recipe Notes:
Do NOT exceed the MAX line - It's important that you never exceed the MAX line. If you're nearing the line, simply omit the excess liquid stock you have.
Very carefully puree the soup - Remove the lid and allow the soup to cool for a few minutes before replacing the lid and pureeing. Start off on Speed 1 before very slowly increasing to Speed 6. If the machine starts to shudder or shake, go back down to Speed 1 and increase ever so slightly.
Storing - Store this soup in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
Freezing - Freeze in an airtight container for up to 3 months.
