It tastes as good as it looks - even if I do say so myself.
I made the recipe up as I went along but am not claiming it to be an original. I'm sure others have done the same as I did and ended up with delicious soup too.
Anyway, here's what I did.
Leek and Potato Soup
4 leeks, thoroughly cleaned and chopped into about ¼" slices
4 medium potatoes, peeled and chopped into about ½" dice
1 onion chopped (or, if you're like me, some frozen chopped onions)
2 chicken stock cubes
Melt some butter in a pan and add the chopped leeks, potatoes and onions.
Put the lid on the pan and leave the veg to sweat for about 10 minutes.
Dissolve the stock cubes in the boiling water and add to the pan to just cover the veg.
Add about 1 tsp of salt.
Bring to the boil and cook until the potatoes are soft - should be about 15 minutes.
Whizz with a hand blender or put it in a liquidiser.
If the soup is very thick, add more boiling water.
Eat with buttered oatcakes.
