 Chef has brought home lots of bags of prepped veg, the best Valentines present ever! So, I’ll be making lots of soups for the next couple of days. Do you have a favourite soup? I’ll make it if you send the recipe…

Leek and Potato soup

January 21, 2007

 My eldest daughter has asked if she can bring soup to school in a flask. So today, I’m making Leek & Potato soup and thought I’d share this simple and tasty recipe.



Leeks, onion, garlic, potatoes, cream and chicken stock (you can use vegetable stock) seasoning and juice from todays roast chicken. You can leave it out!


All diced small.


Added stock cubes, chicken juices and four pints of water.


And simmered for 40 minutes.


Blend, add cream


Season and serve…
