Potato and leek soup
Super hearty, nourishing, simple to make and quite like a hug on a cold winters evening!
- 1 medium onion
- 3 cloves of garlic
- 600 g potato 3-4 medium potatoes
- 600 g leek 2 large leeks
- 2 tablespoons oil
- 2 teaspoons salt
- bay leaf optional
- 2 litres veg stock
- ½ teaspoon black pepper
- juice of ½ a lemon optional
Peel and finely slice the onion and garlic. Chop the potato and leek into small bite-sized pieces, ensuring to use the full length of the leek including the green tops as they taste fab and will give the soup that lovely light green colour.
Pour 2 tablespoons of oil to a large saucepan over a medium heat. Once it heats up, add the onion and garlic and cook for 3 minutes, stirring regularly.
Next, add the potato and leek to the pan along with the salt, and sweat them down for 5 minutes (add bay leaf now if using).
Now, add the veg stock and the black pepper. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to a gentle simmer and cook till the potato is nice and soft, approx. 15 minutes.
Remove from the heat and blend till smooth. Goes nice with a squeeze of lemon over each serving. Enjoy 🙂
