Leek and Potato Soup

Leek & Potato SoupThis is a favourite in our house. It is quick, tasty and a great warmer for those cold winter days. I personally love it served with homemade brown spelt bread with lashings of real Irish butter.

PS!! Just in case you get distracted some day and you “forget” to put in the potatoes, just blend all the other ingredients together, trust me, it tastes equally scrumptious!!

3 Leeks
2 Celery
1 Onion
1lb of potatoes thinly sliced.
I litre of Water
3 jelly stock cubes (2 chicken & 1 veg)
1 cup of milk
1oz of butter & 1 tablespoon of olive oil.
Pinch of red and black pepper.

Sautee the leeks, onion and celery in butter and oil for approximately 20 minutes.
Add the potatoes, water and jelly stock cubes, bring to boil and them simmer until the potatoes dissolve. Next add a cup of milk, blend all the ingredients together and serve.

I love serving mine with a dollop of fresh cream and croutons.
