Step 1

In a large soup pot add potatoes, carrot rounds, leeks and garlic. Cover with water and bring to a bowl; cover and reduce to a simmer. Simmer 20 minutes, until veggies are soft.

Add salt and thyme. Remove from heat and purée with an immersion blender, or working in batches, carefully transfer soup to a blender and purée, making sure you vent the blender cover for steam to escape; cover opening with a kitchen towel.

Bread Crumb Topping:
Heat a small sauté pan over medium high heat. Drizzle with olive oil and add thyme and garlic. Add bread crumbs and sauté until crumbs are golden brown.

Ladle soup into bowls and top with bread crumb mixture. Enjoy!
