Leek and potato soup

I’ve never made this before, so thought I’d give it a go. Just had a taste, and it was blooming delish – so definitely worth a blog…

You’ll need:

Knob of butter
3 washed, chopped leeks
2 medium-sized peeled and cubed potatoes
a vegetable stock cube
a good glug of cream
Black pepper and salt to taste

I use a soup maker, but a large pan does just the same job – you’ll just have to transfer to a blender after it’s cooked.

What to do:

Put the knob of butter in the soup maker on ‘High’, add the leeks, stir and leave to sweat for a minute.

Add the potatoes, and add enough stock to make 1400 ml.

Simmer for half an hour, then blend until smooth.

Stir in a dollop of cream, and season with some freshly ground black pepper and salt.

Enjoy!

  1. I grew Leeks for the first time this year. Tried Leek and Potato soup last week for the first time and lifted some more leeks for this weekends soup. Lovely.

    • I’m planning on growing them next year. I’ve never grown them before, and have spent most of this year growing stuff that we don’t actually eat. So have decided to grow more versatile things like leeks, onions, potatoes etc.
