5 medium potatoes
3-4 leeks (white part only)
2-3 shallots finely chopped
6 -8 pieces good quality bacon (divided because you will blend some into the soup and use the rest as a topping)
4 cups of chicken stock (I used low sodium organic chicken broth by Imagine, homemade stock would be even better)
1 cup of water
Salt to taste
Add leeks. Cook another 5 minutes.
Add potatoes. Add stock and water.
Continue to cook till potatoes are soft, about 30 minutes.
Season with salt and seasoning.
