Cream of Potato and Leek Soup
Cream of Potato and Leek Soup
(Crema di Patate e Porri)
 
 
Ingredients:
 
6 to 8 cups meat broth
2 pounds potatoes
1 pound leeks
2 egg yolks
1/2 cup whipping cream
1 tablespoon chopped parsley
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmigiano cheese
Toasted bread
 
Directions:
 
Prepare Meat Broth.

Peel and chop potatoes.

Trim ends and tough outside leaves from leeks.

Cut leeks lengthwise through to center.

Wash under cold running water, pulling layers apart so grit is removed.

Slice into rounds.

Put potatoes and leeks into a medium saucepan.

Add enough broth to cover.

Cook uncovered over medium heat until vegetables are tender.

With a slotted spoon, place vegetables in a blender or food processor.

Process until smooth.

Return puree to broth.

Bring mixture to a boil.

Remove from heat.

Beat together egg yolks and cream in a small bowl.

Quickly beat egg yolk mixture into hot soup.

Stir in parsley.

Season with salt and pepper.

Serve hot with Parmigiano cheese and toasted bread. Makes 6 servings.
