Recipe Ingredients for Leek and Lemon Soup

2 leek leeks
6 cloves garlic
2 tablespoons butter
94 g lemon juice
1/4 cup white wine
1/4 cup broccoli
1/4 cup peas

Recipe Directions for Leek and Lemon Soup

  1. Wash the leeks well and slice into thin half moons. Also slice the green tops. Smash the garlic roughly. Heat the butter until foaming over medium heat in a large soup pot or Dutch oven. Add the leeks and garlic and cook, stirring often, until soft - about 10 minutes.

  3. Puree with an immersion blender or in a regular blender. Return to pot and season to taste with salt and pepper.
