Potato Leek Soup Recipe
This is a warming, homely tasting soup that I just love. Sometimes I use onion instead of leeks. They have a stronger flavor which I love.
3 medium leeks
3 large potatoes
1/4 stick of butter
4 cups of vegetable broth
Salt and pepper
1. Slice the leeks in two length-ways and rinse them well to remove any dirt. Then cut them into thin slices.
2. Dice the potatoes.
3. Melt the butter in a large pot and add the leeks and potatoes. Stir to coat the leeks and potatoes with the butter, sprinkle with salt and cover. Cook very slowly for about 10 minutes until the vegetables are soft.
4. Add the vegetable broth, bring to the boil and simmer for 10 minutes until the potatoes and leeks are cooked.
5. I use an immersion blender to mix the soup but it's really good chunky too.
