Leek and Potato soup
Soup is such homely food to eat.
Recently I have been thinking of soup creations to expand on traditions recipes or make completely new ones. This recipe for Leek and potato soup is in the former. My recipe is very basic and only contains five ingredients. What could go wrong?
Without being overly flavoursome, what this soup delivers is depth and satisfaction in dealing with those hungry feelings. The tasty leek achieves this, with the potato adding thickness to the soup. There is something beautiful about seeing a simple dish deliver everything you want without too much effort.
Ingredients (for 2 servings)
- 1 onion
- 1 clove of garlic
- 2 leeks
- 3-4 potatoes (I used one can of peeled new potatoes)
- Vegetable stock
- Start by frying dicing the onions and frying them in a little olive oil on a medium to high heat. Finely chop one clove of garlic and toss that in too.
- Roughly chop two leeks and add to the pan. The leeks will start to sweat off nicely.
- Cut your cooked potatoes into small even pieces and add to pan. Season with salt and pepper. Mix the ingredients together.
- Add enough vegetable stock to cover the potato and leeks. Dissolving a vegetable cube in hot water can easily make this. I tend to dissolve in boiling water.
- Add your soup mix to a food processor or large blender. Blend together for a minute or so.
Pour into a bowl and add a few chives to garnish (optional).
And there you have leek and potato soup. A few ingredients and a simple process that anyone can easily follow.
