How to

  • Gather Ingredients and Tools, then rinse Herbs and 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 Leaf, and Thyme, then cook until soft and fragrant without browning the Herbs. 

  • Add Potatoes, Stock, and half the Salt, bring to a boil, and 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.
