Potato Leek Soup with Parsley Carrots ~  Kirsten by Mom
Cooking A Large Pot of Leek Soup a la Kirsten KT 
3 Large Leeks
5 Large Russet Potatoes
1 Large Yellow Onion
1/4 Cup Olive Oil
3 Knorr Chicken Bouillon Cubes
 in 4 cups boiling water.
4 Cups Whole Milk
1/4 cup Corn Starch
6 Large Carrots
1 Large Bunch Fresh Parsley
Wash and rinse the leeks.  Chop off their end, reserving a good amount of green .   Slice leeks in coins, rinse again in a colander. 
Chop up Yellow Onion. 
In a large stock pot, pour in the olive oil . 
Until translucent and slightly amber brown, cook the leeks and onions. 
While these are cooking, wash and chop up the potatoes into cubes.
The house will smell great !   Add the potatoes, and stir constantly, on a medium high heat, slightly browning them as well. 
In a separate container, whisk the corn starch with the cold milk. 
Add the milk to the browned potato leek onion group in the stock pot.
Bring to a soft boil, stirring slowly, then add the bouillon chicken soup
mixture.  Keep an eye on this and stir occasionally.  Add the coins of carrots, and finally the chopped fresh parsley.    Bring to a rolling boil stirring all the while.   Have some extra freezer container on hand
and put some of this away for another day, and save the rest for today !
Be Thankful, and enjoy your dinner !
