Stuart's Spices spin on a classic soup

Ingredients

  • 1 cup leeks, thinly sliced, then chopped in half (about 1 large leek)
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 2 Tbsp flour
  • 3 cups chicken stock
  • 2½ cups baking potato, diced (about 1 large or 2 medium potatoes)

  • ¼ tsp Stuart's Spices Ground Allspice
  • 1 leaf Stuart's Spices Bay Leaf
  • 3 cans minced clams (6.5 oz each)
  • 2 cups whole milk or half and half, or a combination of the two

Instructions

  1. Sauté leeks in butter until soft, about 5 minutes. Add flour to create a roux, and stir about 3 more minutes.
