Easy Leek & Potato Soup

This soup is one I grew up eating. It may be simple but it’s definitely delicious – one to make over and over again. We went on a long walk yesterday and this soup was perfect to fill us up afterwards!

Simply chop three leeks:

And three potatoes (no need to peel!):

Combine them in a saucepan with some salt, pepper, and vegetable stock, cook for 10 minutes or so, and blend! And there you have it, some tasty soup šŸ™‚

Easy Leek & Potato Soup

Ingredients

  • 3 medium leeks, chopped
  • 3 medium potatoes, chopped,
  • 1 tsp stock powder/1 stock cube crumbled
  • Salt & Pepper

Directions

  1. Saute the leeks a little in some oil until they start to wilt. Season with salt & plenty of pepper.
  2. Add the chopped potatoes and stir through.
  3. Stir through the stock powder or crumbled stock cube.
  4. Pour over enough boiling water to just cover the leeks and potatoes.
  5. Simmer for 10 minutes, or until the potatoes are soft enough to push a fork through.
  6. Either transfer to a blender, or use a stick blender (my favourite) and puree the soup until smooth.
  7. Serve and enjoy!
