Potatoes should be flour, special for puree (so that sticky soup does not come out). The cream I use for this leek cream with potato soup is sweet cream և has one. 30% fat. So we are not talking about sour cream (fermented) sarmale or papana. You can choose a cream for cooking if it is natural, has at least 30% fat, for example, from La Dorna (except for imitations, such as Gran cucina, etc.).
The liquid in which the vegetables are to be boiled should be pre-made chicken soup (see how it is made) or vegetable soup (see here), but this is not a problem if you use hot water instead.

Wash և clean potatoes և parsley root. It gives the soup a delicate aroma and a unique sweetness. Cut the thick dark green leaves (not completely) on the leek, divide them lengthwise, wash the sample under a stream of cold water. Among the owners of leeks we often find land or small pigs.
Cut the leek into 1-2 cm thick pieces, the potato into 3 cm cubes, and the parsley in half, then into layers.
Choose a spacious boiler nearby. 4 liters, in which the butter is melted with one tablespoon of oil – the latter prevents the butter from burning. The first thing that came into the pot was the parsley, as it has the longest cooking time. Add a pinch of salt և Cook on low heat for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent burns.
Then add the leek and sprinkle a little freshly ground black pepper and a pinch of salt. Fry for about 3-4 minutes under the lid to soften.
