In a large pot, cook leeks in butter with salt and pepper.  For the best results, cook on low for 10 minutes and cover.  Stir often and make sure that the leeks don’t burn, this will ruin the taste of your soup!

Once the leeks are cooked, add water, broth and potatoes.  Allow the mixture to simmer for 20 minutes.  Check often and stir, then add in the parsley, tobacco sauce and thyme.

Remove the soup from the burner and allow to cool for 20 minutes.  Then, scoop about one half of your soup into a blender and puree until the potatoes are smooth. Pour your pureed soup into a separate bowl and repeat this process until you are done.  You can also use an immersion blender. 

Garnish with a handful of fresh, chopped parsley for each soup bowl. Enjoy!

Geese flying in formation

The V formation itself is a thing of beauty.  I understand that on long journeys one person cannot be expected to carry the full weight and responsibility.  When it is shared, the burden is lighter, the investment is deeper, and there is a benefit to having a range of experience to draw upon.
