Leek Soup with Sausage and Potatoes

Potato soup with leek and sausage
It is not too cold outside. But it was a strange day. I had so many things to say, but I did not. Sometimes it is too late to say a word. But anyway, I was a kind of sad and wanted to prepare something to warm me up from the inside, a healthy, filling meal. Celebration of life, joy of the little things. Soup prepared with simple ingredients, but with love and affection. Tasty and satisfying. It turned out absolutely delicious. Here is the recipe:
Soup with sausages


  • 3 stalks of leek, white and pale green parts only, cut into 2-inch (5 cm) pieces
  • 3 smoked sausages, cut into 1-inch (2,5 cm) thick slices
  • 2 pounds (1 kg) potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 1 pound tomatoes (500 g) tomatoes, grated
  • 3 Tbsp butter
  • 3 Tbsp sunflower oil
  • 1 Tbsp dry winter savory
  • 3 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 dry hot pepper
Leek soup with sausage and potatoesPreparation:
Set a large pot over medium heat.  Add oil, butter and the leek. Saute until leeks begins to soften and to change its color, about 10 minutes. Add sausage and saute for additional 10 minutes until you start feeling the smell of the sausage and sausage starts to brown. Add hot pepper and potatoes, saute for 5 minutes and add the vegetable broth and the winter savory. Season with salt and pepper. Simmer for 20 minutes and stir in the grated tomatoes. Simmer for additional 10 minutes. Serve hot.
