  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil or butter
  • 6 cups leeks, white and pale green parts, cleaned and finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 pounds red potatoes, skin on, diced
  • 2 teaspoons dried dill
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3/4 cup white wine
  • 4 cups chicken or vegetable stock
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 3 tablespoons flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped

Directions

Heat oil or butter in a large soup pot over medium-high heat.
Cook leeks and garlic until leeks are softened and not too browned, about 5 minutes.
Add potatoes, dill, salt and pepper and stir.
Add wine and bring to a boil.
Stir in broth and simmer, uncovered, for 15 minutes, or until potatoes are very tender.
At this point, if desired, puree soup using a hand blender, or puree in batches in a processor until smooth. Take care to not over process or potatoes will become gluey.
Stir in cream and parsley. Add additional dill, salt and pepper to taste.
