How to

  • Gather Ingredients and Tools, then prep Ingredients as indicated.

  • To prep the Leeks, split them into quarters, but don’t go all the way through the root, as they tend to contain a lot of dirt. Rinse in between layers and chop both white and light green parts.

  • Melt Butter in a Pot and add the Leeks, Garlic, Bay Leaves, and Thyme. Then cook until soft and fragrant, but don’t brown the Herbs. 

  • Add Potatoes, Stock, and half the Salt. Bring to a boil, then lower heat to a simmer and cover with Lid.  Cook until Potatoes are soft, roughly 15 minutes.

  • Remove the Bay Leaves and use a handheld Immersion Blender to blend until smooth.

  • Add the Yogurt and bring back to a simmer, then check the seasoning.  Add more Salt if necessary.


Bonus!

  • Instead of Yogurt, use Cream or Milk.

  • Try using different types of Potatoes.

  • Change the consistency by blending less or not at all.
