Creamy Mushroom and Leek Soup
This hearty and flavorful soup is made with creamy potatoes, tender leeks, and flavorful mushrooms. It's the perfect comfort food for a cold winter day and can be easily customized with your favorite vegetables. Serve it with a sprinkle of fresh herbs and a crusty piece of bread for dipping. You can also freeze leftovers for a quick and easy meal later on.
Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the leek, mushrooms, garlic, thyme, salt, and pepper and cook for 5-7 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender.
Add the vegetable broth, water, and potatoes to the pot and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 15-20 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender.
Stir in the heavy cream and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes.
Use an immersion blender to blend the soup until smooth (or carefully transfer the soup to a blender and blend until smooth, then return it to the pot).
Taste and adjust the seasoning as needed. Serve the soup hot, garnished with fresh herbs if desired. Enjoy!
