Leek & Potato Soup
A simple creamy leek & potato soup, jazzed up with a sprinkle of croutons, parmesan and green herbs is so easy and yet very satisfying!
Heat a large saucepan over medium/high heat. Add oil, onion, and garlic and cook for 2 mins. Add the leek and cook for another 5 mins, or until soft.
Add the stock, potatoes and cook covered for 20 mins, or until the potatoes are soft. Remove from the heat and set aside.
Once cool, blend the soup, add the cream and stir to combine. Taste and season with salt and pepper. Serve with a sprinkle of croutons, parmesan, and parsley to add texture and contrast.
It’s all about the topping! A sprinkle of crumbed croutons, dry Parmesan and parsley can add texture and contrast, and turn a simple soup from plain to great!
