Potato and leek soup

It is getting cold. And when it”s cold, we need something warm. So I thought about thick soup. This recipe I chose because I had leek that was sadly looking at me from the fridge, and other ingredients I had on hand. And preperation like almost in all my recipes – easy and quick. But when I tasted this soup I understood that there is something really special – I liked the thyme very very much. Even my hubby agreed with me. So this soup was added to our favourite soup recipes.

Potato and leek soup

Time needed:
Yields: 3-4 servings

Ingredients:

  • ~500 g potatoes
  • 2 large leeks (white and light green parts chopped – should yield about 250 g)
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 tbsps. butter
  • 1/2 tsp. dried thyme
  • ~800 ml water
  • 1 1/2 tsps. fine salt or to taste
  • freshly ground black pepper

Directions:

  • Chop the garlic and leeks.
  • Peel and cube the potatoes.
  • Place a large, heavy saucepan over medium heat, add the butter and allow it to melt.
  • Add the garlic and leeks to the pan, sauté over medium low heat until soft, about 5-7 minutes.
  • Add the potatoes, thyme and salt, toss with the leeks and add the water, enough to cover the veggies.
  • Increase the heat to medium, bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for about 30 minutes or until the potatoes break up easily when pressed with the back of a wooden spoon.
  • Remove from the heat, blend, taste for salt and add more if you like, along with a few twists of black pepper.
  • The soup will be quite thick, so thin it with additional water or with milk if you like and gently reheat.
  • Enjoy!

Minced meat cakes with potatoes

This dish is very practical 🙂 It’s suitable for festive gatherings, because it doesn’t require a lot of time for preparing and everythings are baked at one time. All you need is only salads. We all agreed that we will prepare it again and again.

Corn salads

This salads were prepared by my kids 🙂 And it’s simple but really goods. Tomatoes and cucumber gives freshness, and potatoes – satiety. My kids ate without onions, because they were the chefs 🙂 But for adults I recommend to add onion springs.

Golden fish cakes

Quite easy fish cakes that you can make using ordinary products. Expecially good for using mashed potatoes leftovers. We don’t like fish very much, but this dish we liked even a lot 🙂 Next to this fish cakes you’ll have to serve only salads. I also liked sprinkling these cakes with lemon juice.

Simple but satisfying salads. I liked them a lot. My hubby said that he needs more moisture, but everything can be fixed by adding sour cream or mayonnaise to your taste.

Potato salads with sour cream

I know that potatoes doesn’t sound very summery, but it’s quick and only that matters to me now. Just have to mention that I asked my hubby to boil potatoes and eggs while I was at work. 🙂
