Potato Leek Soup

Course: 
Ingredients: 

3 tablespoons butter
3 leeks
6 – 8 potatoes
3 1/2 cups chicken broth (or enough to barely cover potatoes)
1 cup heavy cream
salt to taste
fresh ground black pepper to taste

Directions: 

Make sure leeks are thoroughly cleaned before chopping to avoid a gritty soup. Chop leeks and potatoes. Melt butter and add leeks, cooking until limp and slightly browned. Add potatoes and cook five minutes, then add broth and simmer until potatoes are tender. Remove from heat and blend with immersion blender and add cream, salt and pepper. Return to low heat and cook 15 minutes more.
