Leek & potato soup ingredients.

When I woke up this morning I decided to make this leek & potato soup. It tastes good & is easy to make.

Leek & Potato Soup.

The recipe here made enough for around 12 servings.

Ingredients.

For my leek and potato soup, I used the following ingredients.

1kg of white potatoes.

5 leeks.

2 bay leaves.

1tsp dried thyme.

6 cups of vegetable broth.

10 fl oz of double cream.

salt & pepper to taste.

2tsp of lazy garlic.

Instructions.

  1. Clean & chop the potatoes into small pieces. (I didn't peel mine but you can.)
  2. Clean and chop the leek into small slices.
  3. Melt butter on low heat in a large saucepan. 
  4. Add the leeks & garlic heat on low until the leek has softened, don't allow it to brown.
  5. Add the potatoes, thyme & bay leaves along with the 6 cups of vegetable broth, salt & pepper to taste.
  6. Bring to the boil & then turn down the heat to simmer until the potato is soft (I allowed mine to simmer for half an hour).
  7. Remove the bay leaves.
  8. Using an electric blender, puree the leek, potato & broth until it is smooth.
  9. If soup is too thin, simmer until it has thickened, if it is too thick add some more water or stock.
  10. Once smooth add the cream & blend.
  11. Warm through & serve with crusty bread.

I loved this soup & will definitely make it again. Great for those colder days when you need something to warm you up.
