For some reason this month (in spite of the heatwave!) I have been obsessed with soup! I had a few different ones on holiday, and back home I really fancied potato and leek but all of the ones in the supermarkets had milk in to make them creamy. I wondered if if was possible to make my own…
Ingredients (serves 3-4)
450g potatoes (about 5 medium ones)
a little oil (1 or 2 tablespoons)
1 stock cube
500ml boiling water
seasoning if required
Peel and chop the potatoes
Wash the leeks, cut into thick slices and wash again
Heat the oil in a large pan and fry the leeks for a few minutes until starting to soften.
Add the potaties and cook for a further minute, stirring to ensure the potatoes are well mixed in and covered in oil.
Add the stock cube and boiling water. Bring back to the boil.
