Ingredients

Cream of Potato Soup

Garlic Chips

Mussels

Preparation

Cream of Potato Soup

  1. In a pot over medium heat, brown the garlic in the oil. With a slotted spoon, remove the garlic and set aside on a plate. In the same pot, soften the leeks in the garlic oil until translucent. Add the potatoes, broth and browned garlic. Bring to a boil.
  2. Cover and simmer for about 25 minutes or until the potatoes are tender.
  3. In a blender, purée the soup until smooth. Return to the pot. Season with salt and pepper. Keep warm.

Garlic Chips

  1. In a small saucepan, fry the garlic in the oil until crisp and lightly browned. Be careful not to burn the garlic as it may become bitter. Drain on paper towels. Set aside.

Mussels

  1. In a large pot, bring the wine and shallots to a boil. Add the mussels. Cover tightly and simmer for about 3 minutes or until all the mussels have opened. Discard any that remain closed. Keep 12 whole mussels with their shells. Shell the remaining mussels and add to the warm soup.
  2. Pour the potato soup into bowls. Garnish with the reserved mussels and garlic chips.
