This week's French Friday selection was a potato and leek soup; a humble soup with great flavor, but on its own, a bit drab. Then I added the recommended truffle oil and instantly transformed this soup from meager to chic. Truffle oil is the Louboutin shoe potato leek soup is the $10 dress and together they are fabulous.
Requiring a short list of relatively inexpensive ingredients this recipe was quite attractive. One quick grocery trip and some basic prep work later and the house was filled with the delicious aroma of onions frying in beautiful butter.
Once the potatoes and leeks joined in with the stock, I was able to leave my vegetables to simmer and tackle the latest list of holiday chores. A mere forty-five minutes later I had a beautiful lunch that not only knocked the chill from my bones, but made me hunger for a trip to Paris with my expensive shoes in tow.
