I fancied some of my favourite soup today, good old L&P.
If you want to learn how to make Leek and Potato soup, here's my recipe.
What you need:
A bunch of leeks. I used five.
A couple of potatoes.
A stock cube - veg or chicken.
Some milk - just under half a pint.
A bit of butter.
Salt and black pepper to season.
Creme Fraiche and chives to garnish.
Chop your leeks...
...and potatoes into small chunks.
In a large pan, melt the butter...
...and add in all of your veg and give it a stir. Season with salt and plenty of black pepper. Put a lid on the pan and let the veggies sweat for about 15 minutes on a low heat.
After 15 minutes or so, add a pint and a half of stock and just under half a pint of milk.
Bring the heat up to a simmer and put the lid on again. Let it simmer for another 20 minutes or so - or until the veg is soft.
I like to blob a bit of creme fraiche and a sprinkle of chives on top to garnish and serve with a side of crusty bread.
