Compared to sad cold salads, I much prefer to have chunky hearty stews for summer dinners (especially a rainy day like today!)! Skip the blending so that you will get the flavorful liquid that goes down easily and chunky pieces that adds interesting texture to your meal!⁠

What kind of potatoes are good for potato and leek stew?

Traditionally potato stews are made with white potatoes, the Yukon gold variety in particular. It tends to hold its shape better after cooking in liquid and not get mushy. See the sharp edges of the potato cubes in picture?

If you get you hands on some russet potatoes instead, you can definitely use them in this recipe as well. Remember to peel the skin as it can get pretty rough! Apparently potatoes makes its way into the dirty dozen list too so it is best to peel them! Here is me and my mom’s favorite vegetable peeler (affiliate link).
