Ingredients
  • 2   tablespoons 
    butter
  • 2   
    shallots or 1 small onion, chopped
  • 3   
    medium potatoes, cut into bite-sized chunks
  • 3   
    leeks, white and light green parts only, wahsed and sliced into thin rings
  •  
    Salt
  •  
    Freshly ground black pepper
  • 6   cups 
    water
  • 2   tablespoons 
    chopped fresh cilantro or parsley
Directions
1.
Place the butter in a large, deep pot over medium-high heat. When the butter is melted, add the shallots, potatoes, and leeks, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and cook until the veggies start to soften, 5-8 minutes.
2.
Add the water and bring to a boil. Then, lower the heat so the soup bubbles gently and cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened and vegetables become fully tender, about 20 minutes longer.
3.
Carefully pour half of the soup into a blender and puree. When smooth, add the pureed soup back to the pan with the chunky remaining soup. Serve garnished with cilantro.
