“My take on a classic hot or cold soup.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 leeks, chopped thinly (just the white parts)
  • 1 large potato, chopped (6 - 8 small)
  • 2 12-3 cups chicken stock (or vegetable stock)
  • 1 -2 stalk celery, chopped
  • 1 cup milk
  • 14 cup sour cream
  • 14 teaspoon nutmeg
  • salt and pepper


  1. In a medium to large stock pot, melt the butter. Add leeks and reduce heat to medium, add a pinch of salt, and soften leeks. (about 10 minutes) Do not brown the leeks.
  2. Add stock, celery, and potatoes and bring to a boil, then reduce to simmer. Cover and let cook for 15-20 minutes or until potatoes are softened. Remove from heat and let cool for 20-30 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  3. While cooking and waiting to cool, make up cream sauce. In a bowl, combine sour cream, milk, and nutmeg. Place in refrigerator until ready to be used.
  4. Once ingredients in stock pot have cooled, use either a submersion blender or pour into a food processor and blend until smooth.
  5. Serve Cold: Add cream mix to stock pot and stir well. Pour entire mixture into a non-metal container and place in refrigerator for a minimum of 6 hours.
  6. Serve Hot: Add cream mix to stock and heat pot over medium heat and stir until it is nice and warm.
