Chunky Potato and Leek Soup

This Chunky Potato and Leek Soup is super easy to make and so yummy that your kids just might ask for seconds...or thirds.

Chunky Potato and Leek Soup
  • 5-6 Cups of cubed, unpeeled potatoes - I used Yukon Gold from my CSA.
  • 2 leeks - cleaned and chopped into small pieces. I ran through the food processor to chop.
  • 1-2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • water
  • 2 Cups whole milk
  • 2 Cups shredded cheddar cheese

Saute leeks in the olive oil until soft.

Add potatoes, salt and pepper. Cover with water and bring to a boil and simmer for 45 minutes.

Use a hand masher and mash potatoes until desired consistency. Add milk and cheese and stir until well-blended.

Easy peasy and very yummy!
