I missed my French Fridays with Dorie post last week ... too busy with Christmas activities! I did not get around to making the speculoos yet, but I'd still like to do that ... maybe next week. I did make the Leek & Potato soup this week, though. It was another fairly quick & simple recipe. I started by sauteing some onions and garlic in a little butter.
After the onions were soft, I basically just threw everything else into the pot ... some salt & pepper, a few springs of thyme, a cubed potato, three leeks, some milk and some chicken broth. I let it cook on the stove for about 40 minutes, as the recipe states, and then I decided to add a bunch of frozen corn. My kids & I tried the soup for lunch with a little shredded cheese on top.
