Leek and Potato Soup

Today is a wet and rainy day. ANOTHER wet and rainy day. It’s becoming quite the trend. My trips to the pool for swimming have gone something like this: bike to the pool, get wet, dry off, go swimming, get wet, dry off, bike home, get wet, dry off…. Nothing is better on a day like this then a good soup! So I proudly cut up my leeks from the allotment and am making Leek and Potato soup.

Leek and Potato Soup

1 lb leeks, chopped and washed

1 lb potatoes chopped

3 tbsp butter

5 cups veggie stock


Melt the butter in a pot and add the leeks. Cover and sweat till the leeks are soft. Add the potatoes and sweat for another 10 minutes. Add the stock and simmer for about 30 minutes. Season and blend. Enjoy!
