Leek potato soup and Olive oil tasting event


1 tbsp oil
1 leek
1 cup potato cubed
1 bay leaf
1 cube of chicken or vegetable stock *
4 to 5 peppercorn
1 1/2 cups of water
2 tbsp cream (half and half or whipping cream)

*The soup cube already has salt so I didn't add any salt.
Heat oil and sauté the chopped leaks, potatoes with the bay leaf.  Add the peppercorns, soup cube and water.  Let it cook covered on low medium heat till the potatoes are cooked for about 15 to 20 minutes.  Keep it aside to cool and puree the mixture in a blender.  The bay leaf can be removed or left in the soup before pureeing.  


Add about 1/4 cup water if needed and the cream.  Reheat for a quick minute if you want to serve the soup warm.
My version of this soup goes to JC100.

  11. That is a beautiful soup, Brava Akheela, The picture of the soup is absolutely stunning. I wonder if that garnish is a rose petal, too small for a hibiscus.
    Thank You.
