Recipe Ingredients for Leek & Potato Soup

200 grams Potatoes, Boiled
50 grams Butter
1 medium (2-1/2" dia) Onions
3 medium raw Leeks
1 stalk, medium (7-1/2" - 8" long) Celery
1 clove Garlic
1 tsp Chicken Stock
7.75 oz Double Cream

Recipe Directions for Leek & Potato Soup

  1. 1. Melt the butter in a large, heavy-bottomed saucepan and add the onion, leek, celery and garlic.

  2. 2. Let the vegetables sweat over a low heat until they are softened but not browned. This will take about 12 to 15 minutes.

  3. 3. Add the potato and stock and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and leave to simmer, covered for 20 minutes.

  4. 4. Allow to cool a little before puréeing in a blender or food processor. Return to the clean saucepan. (If you have a hand blender there is no need to wait. You can blend the soup immediately.)

  5. 5. Bring the soup gently back to the boil and stir in the cream.

  6. 6. Season with salt and pepper and reheat without boiling.

  7. 7. Serve hot or well chilled, garnished with chives.
