Ingredients

  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons butter

  3. Using an immersion blender, carefully blend the soup until smooth and creamy. If you prefer a chunkier soup, you can use a potato masher instead.
  4. Pour in the heavy cream, stirring gently to incorporate. Let the soup simmer for an additional 10 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together.
  5. Season the soup with salt and pepper according to your taste preferences. Remember that the flavors will intensify as the soup continues to cook.
  6. Once the soup reaches your desired consistency and flavor, remove it from the heat.
  7. Serve the Deliciously Creamy Potato Leek Soup in warm bowls, garnished with a sprinkle of chopped chives for a burst of color and freshness.
