Comments

Another great soup recipe from Barb in South Carolina! Thanks Barb. Yum! Beware of the fat and sodium. If you prefer a smoother soup just puree more of the soup in the blender. To lighten it up, look for lowfat kielbasa and substitute olive oil for the butter.

Ingredients

1/2 pounds sausage, kielbasa, sliced into half inch thick rounds

2 tablespoons butter

8 leek(s), halved and chopped

1 pound potato(es), red, cut into 1 inch cubes

1 tablespoon flour, all purpose

32 ounces chicken broth, reduced sodium (or vegetable broth, reduced sodium)

1/4 teaspoon pepper, black, ground

Preparation

In a large soup pot, brown the kielbasa sausage on medium high heat for about 5 minutes. Remove to a paper towel lined plate. Add butter, leeks and potatoes to the pot and cook for 4 to 5 minutes or until the leeks begin to soften. Stir in flour for about 1 minute or until absorbed. Stir in the broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and simmer for about 15 minutes. Transfer 1 1/2 cups of the soup to a blender or food processor and puree until smooth. Return to the pot and stir in kielbasa sausage and pepper. Garnish with salt and pepper if desired.
