Delicious and a little unusual!


3 Leeks; (lighter portion) sliced very thin
3 stalks Celery; sliced thin
2 Carrot; chopped
2 tablespoon Butter
8 medium Potatoes; cubed
5 cups Chicken broth
3 cups Water
1 tablespoon Lemon pepper
1 1/2 tablespoon Garlic; minced
1 teaspoon Cumin
1 tablespoon Salt
1 teaspoon Ground ginger
1/4 cup Sour cream

Original recipe makes 6



Saute leeks, celery, carrots, and garlic in the butter for about 7 mins. Add potatoes, stock, and water, and bring to boil. Throw in spices. Cook till potatoes are well done, about half hour. Add sour cream. If needed for thickening, you can also add one quarter of a cup of milk mixed with one and one half Tbsp cornstarch.

Eat as is, or puree about half for a creamier soup.

Delicious!! We used soy milk instead and no sour cream to make it vegan. Thanks for sharing this. Was excellent!

Just like the recipe states, this soup is a little unusual; however, I enjoyed it.

Thanks for pointing that out! When I opened Big Oven, my fractions were there just fine (one quarter cup for the milk, and one and a half Tbsp for the cornstarch), but for some reason when they uploaded, the fractions didn't take. I edited the recipe, posting the correct fractions in words, but there might be a delay in when it is posted, because I don't see the new written-out fractions yet.

" you can also add ? cup milk mixed with 1? Tbsp cornstarch." Which fractions go where the question marks are, please?
