2 cups water

1 leek, chopped and using only the white part

Add wine to soup pot he wine and cook until it has almost entirely evaporated. Then add your stock, stirring frequently. Remove from heat when the potatoes are tender. Cool.

When cool, blend this mixture until smooth and then return to the pot, water included.

Add the morel and leek mixture to the potatoes and bring to a simmer. Cook for a few minutes until it's heated through.

Add the cream, salt, and pepper and stir until the soup is warmed and thickened to your liking.
