Leek and Potato Soup

Previously one to turn my nose up at this variety of soup until I made it that is. It is super quick and easy to make and so full of flavour. It’s a favourite served on a cold, rainy day with lots of fresh bread and butter, salt and cracked black pepper.


1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1 onion – diced

225g potatoes diced

2 leeks – sliced

1.2 litres vegetable stock

150ml double cream or crème fraîche

Salt and cracked black pepper to season.


Heat oil in a large pan, add your diced onions, leeks and potato cubes and pan fry to soften for about 4 minutes or so.

Add the vegetable stock and bring to the boil. Season and simmer the veg until tender.

Whizz in a blender and finally stir through your cream to serve.
