Leek & Potato Soup Recipe

The simplicity of seasonal veg is never to be underestimated. While squashes and pumpkins definitely get a wow factor at this time of year, the old faithfuls like leek, potato, peas and spinach never let you down. This is my go to recipe when I have leeks, but feel free to add in any veg to the basics and blitz with a hand blender or leave chunky for a fuller feeling. 

Ingredients

Serves 4-6 people

1 tbsp Black & Gold original oil

3 leeks (top, tailed and sliced)

2 potatoes (peeled and cubed)

1 litre stock ( veg or chicken)

sprigs of rosemary, thyme and parsley (or a sachet of bouqet garni)

Method

Sautee the leek and potato in the oil for 4-5 minutes; add the stock, and bring to the boil. 

Tie the herb sprigs together with a small piece of string and place on the top of the soup. If no string, don't worry - the herbs don't move around too much if you don't stir.

Simmer on a medium heat for 20 mins until the potato is tender.

When ready, remove bunch of herbs or sachet if using.  Use a hand blender to puree or leave chunky - whatever you prefer.
