Really Good Potato Leek Soup (Gluten-Free)

One of the few things better than a delicious soup is a rich, delicious soup that is easy and quick to make.

In this recipe for potato leek soup, butter, chicken broth, leeks, cream and potatoes come together to yield a rich, luscious soup that goes great with your favorite toasted gluten-free bread.

1 cup butter
2 leeks, sliced
2 bay leaves
2 tablespoons chives, chopped
4 sprigs fresh thyme
10 black peppercorns
1 quart gluten-free chicken broth
1 cup dry white wine
4 cups Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and diced
1½ cups heavy cream
½ tablespoon white pepper
salt and pepper to taste

Directions:
Trim away the green portions of the leek, leaving just the white part.

Keep the two largest and longest leaves, and make a bouquet garni by folding the 2 leaves around the bay leaves, peppercorns and thyme. Tie into a package-shaped bundle with kitchen twine and set aside. Or, place two leek leaves, bay leaves, peppercorns and thyme together in a piece of cheesecloth.

Cut the white part of the leek in half lengthwise, and rinse well under cold running water to make sure the leek is clean. Slice thinly crosswise and set aside.

In a large pot over medium heat, melt butter. Cook leeks in butter with salt and pepper until tender, stirring frequently, about 15 minutes. Add the chopped leeks and cook until wilted, about 5 minutes.

Add the wine and bring to a boil. Add the reserved bouquet garni, chicken stock, potatoes, salt and white pepper, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 30 minutes, or until the potatoes are falling apart and the soup is very flavorful.

Remove the herbs and peppercorns. Adding just a little bit at a time, puree the soup in a food processor or blender. Be careful! Cover top with a towel to prevent scalding if any soup escapes.

Stir in the creme and season with salt and pepper as desired.

Spoon soup into serving bowls and top with chopped chives.

Confused:

The directions advise to "add the wine" but no wine is listed in the ingredients.

I will be making this for a group of about 40 people. How much does one batch make? I'd need about 1 cup per person.

I'm celiac for less than 3 months. I'm starting to get concern about getting all the necessary vitamins being gluten free. Recently my joint pain has increased, pulsating pain in my head, and sore areas in legs and neck have started recently. Or course, anxiety too. I'm currently taking...

As far as the grey hair goes, I understand how you feel as I started going seriously grey in my mid 20's also. As cyclinglady stated, there is nothing you can do about that except color you hair or live with the grey hair. I chose to color it. Grey hair is generally either a genetic thing or it...

Lotions used topically are not a concern at all unless they contain gluten and you ingest them into your mouth. Gluten has to get into your GI tract, (which begins in your mouth) for damage to occur. Ditto for hair care products. As most salons have you bend your head back into a sink to wash,...

YES get the blood test and the endoscope done if you can, if your doctor will put the dia. formally on your records without these then your blessed in a way. I had a similar issues getting mine done. You have to be eating gluten for 12 weeks at least a half slice of bread a day for the antibodies...

I was diagnosed about 7 weeks ago, and have been gluten-free since. A few slip-ups, mind you, that I paid for. I was diagnosed on my symptoms only. However, I understand there is a more definitive diagnosis with a blood test. Is it recommended that I get this done? Thanks.
