A friend graciously shared some of this soup and I want to document the recipe (taken from this website with my adaptions) before I forget how to make this yummy meal!
- 4 leeks, chopped
- 4 large potatoes, cubed
- 1tbsp olive oil
- 800ml chicken or vegetable stock (or use your own by putting a chicken carcass in a crock pot overnight!)
- 300ml single cream
- Pinch of grated nutmeg
- Sweat 4 chopped leeks and 4 large cubed potatoes in 1tbsp olive oil for 10 mins, stirring occasionally until softened but not browned.
- Add 800ml chicken or vegetable stock, cover and simmer for 15 mins. Season to taste and leave to cool slightly.
- Liquidise soup until smooth. Return to pan, stir through 300ml single cream and pinch of grated nutmeg. Reheat gently. Garnish with a swirl of natural yogurt, chopped parsley and some crunchy croutons.
Amazing! Jane even enjoyed hers slurping it through a straw! Delicious on a cold day.
