I love Leek soup. I tend to buy it at Safeway, it’s a quick go to for a simply soup….My Instant Pot has rescued me once again from processed soup. This soup is so quick and simple.
1 pound of peeled and cut Potatoes
2 good size sliced Leeks (only the white portion)
1 chopped Onion of your choice
1/2 teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes
1/2 teaspoon Oregano
4 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup half and half or milk
Some Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper to Taste
Bacon for Garnish
First you will place your olive oil in the bottom of your instant pot and place on saute. You will sweat your chopped onions and leeks for several minutes.
Once the have begun to sweat you will add in your oregano and pepper flakes. I do have to warn you if you can’t handle the heat then add your red pepper flakes at the end of the soup making process.
Toss in your cubed potatoes
Then your milk and broth. Turn off your Instant Pot and place on Manual High for 10 minutes. Make sure your valve is closed so it can come to pressure than walk away. You will want to wait for it to come down Natural Pressure wise. I went and picked up my son from school.
When you open the pot it will look like this.
I did two rounds in my blender although you could also do an emersion blender if you wish. From here you need to taste it and add salt and pepper to your liking.
It gave my 5 very nice size bowls of soup.
Look at how creamy this soup is.
