Another classic of the soup world Leek and Potato.  I have a special love for this soup as it was the first one I ever made, and subsequently have made the most.

Simplicity again here.

1 x Onion

2 x Leeks

250 g Potatoes (2 x large, 3 x normal)

1.2 litres of Veg Stock (1 -1/2 veg stock cubes)

Salt and Pepper.

Method.

Dice the onion, cube the potatoes. and slice the leeks into rings.

Heat the oil in a pan, adding the onions and leeks together and gently fry for 5 minutes until onions soften.  Add the potatoes and cook for a further 2 minutes.

Boil the kettle, add the stock cubes and add to the onions, leeks and potatoes, add salt and pepper, bring to boil and leave to simmer for 40 minutes, stirring occasionally.ive it a blend or leave chunky.

Veggie Variations

Add a small carton of cream to give it that creamy taste.

Again, you can
