Lovely Leek and Potato Soup

Delicious leek and potato soup to warm even the coldest of winter nights.

  1. Melt butter over stove and add washed and sliced leeks, peeled and diced potatoes, garlic, sugar and herbs to a pot.
  2. Cover and cook gently until leeks and potatoes are soft.
  3. Stir stock into water, and add to the soup.
  4. Taste and season if necessary.
  5. Bring to boil and cook over a low heat for 30 minutes.
  6. Soup can be left chunky or pureed. Add a little cream to each plate when serving.


For a vegan variation, substitute the butter for olive oil, the chicken stock for veggie stock and omit the cream.
