Description

Leeks are the titans of the onion family. They are a strong, hearty vegetable that pack a lot of flavor in a dish. This soup is a flavorful, warm, and comforting way to come in from the cold. It takes 35 minutes to prepare and is 260 calories. It is rich and hearty. Ingredients include butter, olive oil, minced leeks, minced fresh parsley, chicken stock, and hard-boiled egg. Serve it with croutons or fried corn tortilla strips.

Ingredients

1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 leeks (cleaned and minced)
3 tablespoons fresh parsley (minced)
4 cups chicken stock
2 hard boiled eggs

Directions

1Heat the butter and oil in a pot on medium-low heat. Once the butter has melted, add the leek and parsley and stir well.
2When the leeks begin to cook and turn a light gold color, add 3 cups of chicken stock. Cover the pot and cook for 5 minutes until the vegetables become soft.
3Remove the yolks from the hard boiled eggs. Chop the egg whites into small pieces.
4Add the yolks and remaining chicken stock to a food processor. Liquefy and pour into the pot with the leeks. Cook for another 5 minutes. Add the eggs whites and stir.
