I also love creamy potato soup, and this soup is like liquid gold! It was so delish that I could not stop eating it! And it's not as bad as typical creamy soups because instead of using heavy cream, I used.....wait for it.....fat-free half and half. Yep, no fat, lower in calories, and still creamy! It totally worked and I will totally try this again with some other soups.
Creamy Potato and Leek Soup
- In a medium pot over medium heat, combine the potatoes and broth and allow to simmer for 20 minutes, or until potatoes are tender.
- In a separate skillet over medium heat, saute the leeks in the butter or margarine for 5 to 10 minutes, or until tender. Add the leeks and the fat-free half and half to the potatoes and stir well. At this point you might want to take a potato masher and slightly thicken the soup.)
- Add salt, pepper and steak seasoning, or other seasonings you prefer, to taste.
