Secret Cravings' Secret Recipes: Author Paige Prince

Welcome to Secret Recipes. As you all know, the authors you love know how to cook up some amazing romances. But, did you know that most of us also love to cook, bake and grill? Sometimes our characters even request that we make something they like...just so we can share it with you, the readers. This is the place for you to find all of those recipes. So come on in and share a bite to eat with your favorite authors. Let's get cookin'!

Today, we're being visited by the fabulous Paige Prince, author of Second Chance At Love. She's brought an incredibly delicious recipe for a soup that's great anytime. Let's check it out:

Slow Cooker Leek & Potato Soup
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 4 hours, 00 minute
Total Time: 4 hours, 15 minutes
Yield: Serves 6
·        2 large leeks, washed, ends trimmed, thinly sliced
·        4 large russet potatoes, peeled and quartered
·        3 carrots, washed and chopped
·        2 celery stalks, chopped
·        2 cloves garlic, minced
·        salt and pepper to taste
·        4 to 6 cups vegetable broth, or enough to cover the vegetables
·        croutons and fresh parsley for garnish
·        heavy cream (optional)
·        Place the leeks, potatoes, carrots, celery, and garlic in the slow cooker pot.
·        Season with salt and pepper to taste.
·        Add in the vegetable broth, just to cover the vegetables.
·        Cover and cook on HIGH for 4 hours, or LOW for 6 hours.
·        Puree the soup with either an immersion blender, or a food processor. If using the food processor, puree the soup in batches; DO NOT pour the whole soup into the food processor all at once.
·        Taste for salt and pepper.
·        Ladle the soup into bowls.
·        Add croutons and parsley.
·        Drizzle some heavy cream on top right before serving. (optional)
