Potato leek soup - Gluten Free

One of our favorite soups: Potato leek soup! Warm, delicious and naturally gluten-free.
Really easy to make and only takes a few simple ingredients.
What really makes the difference in our version is the home-mate chicken stock. It's so easy and delicious you won't go back to packaged stock after learning how to make yours! Whenever you roast a whole chicken in the oven, simple take all the bones, some nice fresh herbs, place it in a big casserole, cover it with water and boil for a couple of hours. Drain it , save it in the freezer in jars and have it ready for soups, risottos and other delicious preparations.

Ingredients:

  • 1 or 2 leeks
  • 1 tablespoon of butter
  • home made chicken or vegetable stock 
  • fresh thyme
  • 4 mashed potatoes
  • salt and pepper






Depending on how you like the consistency of your soup, you can either leave it rustic, as we did, or you can use a blender to make it look smoother and creamier.
Serve each dish garnished with fresh thyme for a little touch of goodness :)
Remember that potatoes are not supposed to be frozen or saved in the fridge - they really only last for 24 hours before going bad. Make your soup fresh, in the moment and enjoy!
