Delicious, warming and oh-so-tasty, oh-so-easy leek and potato soup recipe, with creamy and not so creamy options. TOOOO good!


Ingredients

  • 2 medium potatoes, peeled
  • 4 cups water

Instructions

  1. Boil the potatoes in 4 cups of water until soft, then turn heat down to medium. Keep the water – do not discard as this will form the base of the soup.

  3. Add the cooked onions and leeks to the potatoes (in the water)
  4. Add half a stock cube and mix through.
  5. Add the cream and mix through.
  6. Using a stick blender, blend for 30 seconds just to create a smoother consistency.
  7. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  8. Optional: Garnish with crispy bacon, croutons, spring onions and a dash of olive oil. Serve with warm Ciabatta bread.
