Recipe Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons grapeseed oil
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 4 medium Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 3 medium leeks, white and light green parts only, thinly sliced
  • 3 stalks celery, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 5 sprigs fresh thyme, chopped
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 4 slices cooked bacon, crumbled

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Heat oil and butter in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add potatoes, leeks, and celery; cook and stir until leeks are tender, about 8 minutes. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  2. 2 Stir in broth, thyme, salt, and pepper. Cover and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook, uncovered, until potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes.
  3. 3 Transfer 4 cups soup into a blender. Remove the top insert of the blender and cover with a paper towel; puree until smooth. Add puree back to the Dutch oven.
  4. 4 Stir in heavy cream and cook over medium-low until slightly thickened, 10 to 15 more minutes. Ladle into bowls and garnish with crumbled bacon.
