Leek and Potato Soup

It’s definitely soup weather! I just made some Leek and potato soup and although I’m quite an accomplished soup maker, I like to do a bit of searching in the internet for new ideas and ways of doing things and also to be inspired about using odd bits and bobs that are in the fridge.

In here are two leeks and a quarter of a fennel bulb that had been tucked up in cling film waiting to be finished off. I added a little chopped (tender) rosemary and two bay leaves from the garden, also six pepper corns. Oh yes and a small clove of garlic, finely chopped.

I just added half an organic stock cube with the amount of liquid I wanted (stock cubes do tend to be salty).

When its cooked, season to taste and whiz up in a blender!
