I have everything to make a really good Leek and Chicken soup.
The recipe calls for potatoes and I dont want to use them.
I know that the starch from the potatoes helps with the thickness of the water, so I could probably just add a teaspoon of flour or cornstarch right?
What can I use in place of a potatoe?
Squash? I have several pound of yellow and green
the recipie I am using is -
6 x leeks (each about 1.5in. wide)
4 x boneless skinless chicken breast halves 5 oz each
1/2 lb red thin-skinned potatoes
1 tsp butter or margarine
2 cup nonfat chicken broth
1 cup dry vermouth or white wine
1 tbl chopped fresh basil leaves
1 tsp grated lemon peel
1 1/2 cup frozen petite peas
2 tbl cornstarch
salt and pepper
4 x thin lemon slices or more
basil sprigs (optional) rinsed
I think a squash sounds good..
But I am not that familiar with the taste of Leek..
In fact, I can not say I have ever tried a Leek..
