you gotta try this cloud soup

If you haven't tried Tribeca Yummy Mummy's "cloud soup" (aka leek and potato), then do so immediately. I made it for dinner tonight and it was a big hit - along with star and airplane cheese toasts for the Bean (to go with the "clouds") and floating hearts for his daddy. I had ordered some leeks and potatoes from the co-op last week (delivered yesterday) to make leek and potato soup, but I usually use a different recipe. I found this one after I had already done my co-op ordering, and I liked Yummy Mummy's idea to use white wine, so I went for it.

I didn't have freshly ground nutmeg or pepper, so I used the already-ground stuff, and my white wine I had on hand was sweet and not dry, but other than that, I pretty much went exactly by the recipe.

Her soup was more cloud like and fluffy, and she called for 5-6 cups of water, so I used 6, but next time I'll add quite a bit less. The soup was thinner than I imagined it would be, so we dunked our cheese toast in it for some extra bulk.

It was yummy, Mummy, and I heartily recommend it.

just saw this, abigail...how cute are the stars and plane cheese toasts? very nice touch.

so sorry to hear that your soup came out to be thin. hmmm...you could always simmer it a bit longer so that the water evaporates. and yes, i'm terrible for not giving my measures in lbs., so please forgive me. we have those humungous russets here.

hope that it at least TASTED yummy!

xoxo, cate (a.k.a tribeca yummy mummy)

Cate, it wasn't bad thin, and actually, leftover was a bit more bulky. I think it must've been the tiny Japanese potatoes that did it. Now I know for next time! And there will be a next time 'cause this is good stuff! Thanks. :)
