Method

  • 1
    Melt butter in a large pot over medium heat. Cook and stir leeks in the melted butter until softened, about 15 minutes.
  • 2
    Stir in chicken stock and potatoes and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are tender, about 20 minutes.
  • 3
    Pour about half of the soup into a blender, filling the pitcher no more than halfway full. Hold down the lid of the blender with a folded kitchen towel, and carefully start the blender, using a few quick pulses to get the soup moving before leaving it on to puree. Pour the pureed soup back into the pot.
  • 4
    Stir in heavy cream and season with sea salt and black pepper.
