potato-leek-soup-2 recipe

 potato soup
 4 potatoes (more if you like to slice potatoes), sliced thinly
 4 leeks, cleaned, washed and sliced, mostly white parts but some of the 
 green is ok.
 vegetable broth.  I buy some in a jar in the HFS that is very good.
 About 12 cups of water with enough of the veggie broth for the 12 cups.
 1 onion, sliced
 Put the onions, leeks and potatoes in a large pan and cover with the water 
 and veggie broth.  I don't measure and I just think it is about 12 cups 
 but it could be more.  Cook until tender.  Season to taste and put either 
 in the blender by batches or the food processor.   I have a Cuisinart and 
 it works fine but I prefer the blender.  Be careful.  Put just about a 
 cup in the blender to begin, whirl slowly and the faster.  Add more of 
 the potato mixture and again start slow.  Very hot liquids will go over 
 the top if you start off too fast a speed.
