Soup-erb Leek and Potato Soup 

As a daughter of a Scouser, I haven’t ever made Leek and Potato soup. However, my Mum, announced that it was her favourite soup, when I said about this recipe. It is basically an onion soup, but with the very Welsh vegetables leeks. It has a few simple ingredients, and yes it looks like snot, but I hoovered it up, as did my kids. It was really tasty and took no time, and hardly effort to make. I can’t help but think the perfect addition would be bacon, but I am aware that my love of bacon has taken over this blog, so I stuck with a few shakes of paprika.

Serves: 4

Ingredients:

2 medium sized potatoes, peeled and chopped

1 large leek, finely chopped

1 small onion, finely chopped

Knob of butter

Splash of milk

400ml of chicken stock (veg stock if you’re veggie)

Salt and pepper

Shake of paprika

Method:

Chop and peel all of the veg.

Add the leek to a pan with the butter, stir occasionally until the leek looks glossy and starts to cook, on a low heat. Cook for about 5 minutes.

Add the potato and stir in the butter. Add the chicken stock, salt, paprika and pepper and simmer for 10 minutes, until the potato is cooked.

Add to a blender, and blend until smooth.

Put the soup back into the pan and add a splosh of whole fat milk.

Serve with cheese on toast.
