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!

Cottage cheese and potatoes dumplings

At first I just wanted to make photo and upload it to Mano receptai.lt. But when my family tasted them, I understood that they are really good and they deserve to be posted here. I have tried to boil cottage cheese and potato dumplings without the recipe, bet they never tasted as good as these. I think the secret is good cottage cheese and potato proportions. So I really recommend to try this a little bit simplified version of dumplings.

Potato and cottage cheese Arrows

After lunch I had boiled potato leftover, so I let my fantasy take me away 🙂 These arrows are really greate and cheese is here a must. But you should be careful with the salt, because cheese already has it inside.

Beetroot soup with minced meat

Easy but substantial soup. Because of vinegar you can feel mild sourness, so you better pour vinegar not by milliliters but by your taste. And I can say one more thing – I’ve tasted delicious soup like this long time ago.

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.
