I've always loved but never made soup like this. A person would think it would be a healthy choice when going out to eat but with all the cream its really not helping in the fat department.
Here is a low calorie recipe I found:
Leek And Potato Soup
2 tbsp olive oil
1 small clove garlic (optional)
1 med onion, diced
3 leeks, white pats chopped
3 or 4 rustic potatoes cut into small cubes
1 cup fat free broth (chicken or veggie)
1 2/3 cup fat free milk
Dash of hot sauce
Heat oil, garlic, leeks, potato and onion over medium heat. Cook for 5 mins and add the broth and milk. Cover and simmer over medium heat for 30 min or until the potatoes are cooked and tender.
Remove half of soup and once cooled blend in blender, then add back into pot, add hot sauce and season with pepper.
This is such an easy recipe. It doesn't have the full cream flavor of its fattening cousin but it sure hit the spot ;)
