French Fridays with Dorie – Leek and Potato Soup with Corn

by Jessica on December 17, 2010

Leek and Potato Soup with Corn |

Dorie triumphs again with this week’s ‘French Fridays’ pick. Her book, Around My French Table, hasn’t let me down yet… seriously.

I arrived home on Tuesday night around 6p and after settling in and prepping ingredients, I was sitting by the fire eating soup by 7:05p. Amazing. I took one of Dorie’s brilliant Bonne Idee’s and added corn to the mix about five minutes from the end of cooking. Definitely something that took the soup over the top. It’s what Momma G would add to her potato soup when I was younger, so eating it this way took me back a few years. Simple, delicious and one of the best ways to warm up on a cold night!

I love the corn idea! Your photos are truly beautiful and I’m totally jealous!

The yellow dots of corn look so bright and vibrant in your photos! Great idea! I can’t wait to make this soup next week!

This is pretty much how I made the soup, except I added the croutons. I love your pictures!

Ooh, this is the first corn version I have seen. I like it!

mmm corn – will have to try that next time. This was definitely a hit!

Love the corn & cheese add-ins. Makes me want to crumble some bacon on top. Oh. I need soup!

It looks so good, Jessica. The corn and cheese give it so much color and I am sure even more flavor. Great photos!

Beautiful photos and great looking soup. Much better than a plain potato soup. I love the corn. So many have said that this soup is not photogenic…well, you proved them all wrong. Good Job!

Your photos are lovely…and your soup looks wonderful! I love the idea of corn. I will have to try that when I make it!


11 Margaret December 18, 2010 at 10:53 pm

Now THAT looks wonderful. The cheese and the corn would definitely take it to the next level.

The corn and cheese additions sound lovely. I almost added some spinach, but forgot, although I did include some fennel. It’s definitely a versatile soup.


13 Lana December 19, 2010 at 3:51 am

I love your photos! And next time I make this soup, I’ll add the corn. It was wonderful as is, but the corn can only make it better.
I voted for you:)

I made mine with spinach (last week) but I was dreaming about the corn version! I’m glad you enjoyed it!


15 Ann (napangel) December 20, 2010 at 4:20 pm

I loved this soup too! Next time I’ll add the corn. (I added leaks this time, and they were a great addition.)

I can’t wait to make this soup. I will have to try several versions – the fennel version and now your recommendation of the corn. My family likes both.
