the sunday soup
sliced potato....around 8
saute approx. 2-3 of the potatos with some of
the leeks and onions
in another pan....saute leeks, onion add remaining
sliced potatoes and chicken stock
cook until soft, the do a rough mash, add heavy cream
add remaining potato mixture. i also added prosciutto and red pepper
serve it up hot with a slice of artisan bread...yum
before we heading out of manzanita we ate lunch at the bread & ocean
a couple of the girls got the potato soup with prosciutto. of course
i had a couple of bites and had wished that i had ordered the soup.
it had big chunks of potato that had been sauteed. it made the soup
extra thick and smokey. ever since i returned home i have been on
a quest to find this recipe. well i didn't, but i did find this one that
i converted to suit my needs. this is an easy, hearty soup. once
you get the potatoes sliced...it moves so so fast. i followed the
recipe, except i sauteed some potatoes with a portion of the leeks
and onions, then added the prosciutto. once i mashed the potatoes
in the big pan, i added this mixture and the cream.
i love soup. i could eat it everyday for lunch and now that
there is snow here in indiana....time for soup.
