Leek and Potato Soup

4 Oct

Mr M made this traditional favourite, although sadly his efforts were not as amazing as usual. This is really easy to make, soften onions and leeks in plenty of butter. Meanwhile peel, chop and boil potatoes until soft. Then mash up the potatoes with butter. Mix softened onions and leeks into the mashed potato. Mr M then added water to thin and seasoned it. He likes his soup so thick and chunky that you can stand a spoon up in it. This was no exception!

I think being critical this was a 6, it filled the belly up but wasn’t quite what I was after. My version uses chicken stock and a bit of milk to give a creamier mix and partially pulses the vegetables. I think Mr M just needs more practice 🙂
