You will really like the taste of this simple but tender and springly tasteful French soup.
We didn’t expect a lot from this potato leek soup. How can you expect something from the boiled leek and potato? 🙂 But as we continue our learning of French cuisine, Potage Parmentier became an absolute delicious discovery for us. It is rich in taste, amazing in texture and healthy healthy healthy! 🙂
Moreover, this soup is a good soup base. For example, if we add watercress we will get a watercress soup. Also, we can add cauliflower or broccoli, green beans or something else. With each ingredient you will get a new taste and a new fantastic look.
Try it yourself and enjoy the burst of health this soup gives!
Start from the potatoes. Wash them, peel and slice. After that, wash and slice the leek. Then, place all vegetables into a casserole with cold water. Simmer the soup, partially covered for 40-50 minutes until the vegetables are tender. Turn off the heat and leave the casserole. Tip: Vegetables have a richer taste when they are left in a covered casserole. That’s why, leave the half-ready soup on the stove for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, chop the parsley and cut the green pen of the leek in stitches. Place the soup in a blender and add the cream with butter to it. Blend the soup. The soup is now ready - place it in the soup plates. Decorate the soup with the parsley, cream, leek and watercress leaves. Voila!
