In the Soup
Creamy Leek-Potato Soup
Pureeing conventional leek-potato soup in a blender makes it unpleasantly gluey, but we weren’t about to use a food mill for such a simple soup. By using fewer potatoes and adding bread crumbs for body, we devised a low-starch, low-cream leek-potato soup recipe that has a smooth texture after being put through the blender.
Braun Multiquick 5 Hand Blender
This blender’s two speeds were well calibrated and were all we needed to bounce from task to task with ease. It was the easiest to maneuver—light and slim, with a grippy body. It had a whisk for perfect whipped cream and a blending cup that contained splatter. Offer ends at 11:59p.m. PT on November 28, 2017.
