Leek & Potato Soup

I think everyone has a recipe for leek and potato soup and I’m no different:

Leep & Potato Soup

Leek & Potato Soup

1 tsp olive oil

1 onion, finely chopped

1 garlic clove, minced

550g leeks, sliced

200g potatoes, diced

1.6ltrs hot vegetable stock

1 tbsp chives, chopped

1 tsp chilli powder, garnish (optional)

Heat the oil in a large soup pan over a gentle heat and cook the onion for 10-15 minutes until soft.

Add the garlic and cook for a further minute.

Add the leeks and cook for another 5-10 minutes until softened.

Throw in the potatoes and toss together with the leeks. Pour in the hot stock and bring to the boil.

Simmer the soup for about 20 minutes until the potatoes are tender.

Cool slightly, then puree in a food processor/blender or with a submersion blender.

Stir in the chives and reheat.

Serve with a sprinkling of chilli powder for a warm kick and a fresh crusty bread roll.
