The protagonist ingredient is, doubt, the potato. As its flavor is very not pronounced, we are going to prepare the prescription with vegetables that are complemented very well with this vegetable. A clear example is the onion, also is used of form common in the potato puree.
From here, we can choose vegetables of smooth and honey-coloured flavor among others, as the leek. Also we have seen other prescriptions that introduce the celery, but since in many cases it leaves filaments without crushing, characteristic flavor is not attractive for everybody, special me the children, how to use the leek.

Elaboration of the potato cream prescription
Time of preparation: 30-40 minutes Difficulty: very easy Energy: 150-250 kcal (following the used trimming)
In a frying pan, we saw the spoonful of oil and pochamos the onion and the leek. For one better baking, cut in small pieces both vegetables. When both have remained slightly soft, we produce the potato that previously we will have divided in small dices.
We remove some minutes and we add to the broth of vegetables or in their defect the water. We let cook during 30 minutes. We verify that the vegetables are soft puncturing with a possesor.
We let cool during some minutes and we passed the beater through the ingredients, not a honey-coloured and slight texture.
As trimming, we have used a little cream to cook, fried, bacon fried, or especially for those cold days, boiled egg or escalfado.
As the flavor of the potato is something flat, recommendable to introduce so many accessories as we were to find the ideal point of the potato cream.
For the potato cream, you can use bought vegetable broth that you prepare you yourself or in supermarket.
One of the used brands more has this composition: concentrate of vegetables and vegetables: 4% or 5%, including leek, onion, marrow, carrot, spinach and celery.
In some prescriptions, the idea to fry some laminated mushrooms and to place them on the plate already mounted. one devises to us brilliant to play with the cream of potatoes and crisp ingredients. We secure the same effect, with bacon fried.
In the same way, if you are of strong flavor, you can replace the vegetable broth by chicken soup, that also fits very well with the potato, the onion and the leek.
The combination of potatoes and processed cheese always has fitted perfectly. We are customary to see numerous prescriptions that combine potatoes cooked anyway (roasted, cooked or fried) incorporating cheese that slowly is based and it is annexed to the potato.
For this reason, to complement the potato cream prescription, you can well incorporate the cheese exactly when you have separated from the fire the pot. How one is based slowly. When passes the beater, as all the ingredients league together perfectly.
