leek and potato soupI’m not sure why this is called Cowgirl Soup.  All I know is that’s what the gal called it that originally gave me the recipe.  So it stays.  Really, it’s just a basic, yummy leek and potato soup.

What you’ll need: butter (about 3-4 T), leeks (say, three), garlic (2 cloves, minced), potatoes (I prefer the little ones, maybe about 3 c. worth, or one small bag), carrots (2, peeled and chopped), stock (about a L), a little extra water and dill.

Melt butter in bottom of stock pot, add chopped leeks and sauté until tender, about 5 min on med. heat.  Add garlic at last moment and stir a bit.  Add potatoes and carrots and enough stock/water to cover the mix, plus about an inch.  Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer until potatoes and carrots are tender: about 25 min.  Add a lot of dill and serve with bread.  Yummy goodness.  Cheers!  Ren
