Concerts, good food and parades mark this holiday in Wales, but you can celebrate anywhere by making our delicious Welsh Leek Soup, especially appropriate since the leek and the daffodil are the official symbols of St. David.
Easy to make, with only a few ingredients, this soup is delicious and very kid-friendly.
Leek and Potato Soup
18 small red new potatoes
6 cups chicken stock
3 leeks, chopped
6 slices bacon, diced, uncooked
2 T butter
2 cups milk
salt and pepper to taste
In a large pot, cover potatoes with water to cover. Bring to a boil and cook until tender.
Meanwhile, saute leeks and bacon in butter just until leeks are clearish (not brown).
When potatoes are done, cut them into bite sized pieces. Return potatoes to the pot with the chicken stock, bacon and leeks. Season with salt and pepper. Cook over medium heat until simmering, then remove from heat and stir in milk. Serve immediately.
