Rich Potato Leek Soup is a delicious and mouth watering soup. The very smell of the boiling soup draws my family into the kitchen! You just have to prepare the Rich Potato Leek Soup for yourself to understand what I am talking about.
  Leeks 4 Large
  Butter/Margarine 2 Tablespoon
  Dill weed 1 Tablespoon
  Potatoes 4 Large, peeled and sliced
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  White pepper 1⁄8 Teaspoon
  Root vegetable stock/Instant vegetable stock 3 Cup (48 tbs)
  Milk 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Sour cream 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Dill sprigs 2

Trim and discard root ends and tough green tops of leeks; remove all coarse outer leaves.
Cut leeks in half lengthwise, then hold each one under cold running water, separating layers to rinse out dirt.
Cut into thin slices.
Melt butter in a 5 quart kettle over medium heat.
Add leeks and dill; cook, stirring often, until leeks are soft.
Add potatoes, 1/2 teaspoon salt, pepper, and stock.
Bring to a boil over high heat; cover, reduce heat, and simmer until potatoes are tender.
In blender or food processor, whirl soup, a portion at a time, until smooth.
Return puree to kettle and stir in milk.
Cook over medium heat, stirring often, until soup is steaming.
Add more salt, if needed.
Top each serving with a dollop of sour cream and dill sprigs.
