2 large baking potatoes
1 sour apple
½ fresh garlic. This is the new and mild garlic, or
2 cloves garlic
4 pepper grains
½ dl good olive oil
½ tsp. mild curry or turmeric
½ l water
1 glass of white wine
1 cube vegetable bouillon
2 tablespoons cremefraiche
1 piece of smoked eel approx. 200 g
Season soup with salt and white pepper
Chives for garnish
Potato and leek soup with smoked eel
Procedure without liability: This dish comes really from Sweden, but has been modified slightly to my taste. Peel the potatoes and apples, cut them into cubes. The leek cleaned and cut into 2 cm wide slices. Fresh garlic divided into two parts. All vegetables sear in a hot pan with olive oil added a little curry (give flavor and color) or turmeric (only gives color).
When the vegetables have taken a little color pour water and white wine on and add one cube vegetable bouillon. Now boil for 15 minutes until potatoes are almost tender. While the dish boils peel your smoked eel and cut it into small mouth right pieces. Put the eel pieces aside on a plate for later use.
When the potatoes are finished pour the entire contents into a blender and blend until you have a soft texture. Please just note if your blender can withstand boiling water. Can it, continue from here. Cremefraiche, salt and white pepper poured into the blender and blend again. The soup is poured directly into hot deep plates.
If your blender can't withstand boiling water, you must first cool the soup to a suitable temperature before blending. Blend the soup when it is lukewarm, and pour the contents into a saucepan, and return to a boil. Stir in cremefraiche, salt and pepper. Soup poured from the saucepan directly into the hot deep plates.
Serving: Place the pieces of smoked eel over the soup in the middle of the plate.
Garnish: Finely chopped chives sprinkled over.
Drink: The natural choice would be the same white wine, which is used in the soup.
Hint: A blender, where the bowl is made of glass, can withstand boiling water. A plastic bowl may not always withstand boiling water. See the manual, it is written there.
