Mushroom & Leek Soup  

This soup is simple and tasty. To give my mushroom and leek soup a heartier feel, I add chopped yellow potatoes. Adding wine to most things, especially soups, also just makes my day. It gives me an excuse to open a bottle while cooking and have a glass.

Enjoy!

2 medium leeks
3/4 pound mushrooms
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 large carrot, chopped 
1 celery stick, chopped 
5-6 yellow potatoes
1/2 cup dry white wine
1/2 of 14-ounce veggie broth
1 tablespoon chopped chives

1. Wash leeks well and cut in 1/4 inch-thick rounds. Thinly slice mushrooms. 

2. Cover the bottom of a sauce pan in olive oil and heat. Saute leeks about 5 minutes. 

3. Add mushrooms, garlic, carrot and celery and saute until the liquid from the mushrooms evaporates and the mushrooms begin to brown. 

4. Add wine and boil 1 minute. 

5. Add broth and chopped potatoes and simmer until potatoes are tender. 

5. Salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle with chives or scallions.
