Inspired by Wilma's World who posted a recipe for Leek,Potato and Carrot Soup
Wilma's Leek, Potato and Carrot Soup
I thought I would post my recipe for plain old Leek and Potato with a Kick which I had for lunch today.
30 g Butter
1 Garlic clove , finely chopped
A good pinch of Chilli Flakes
1 small onion finely chopped
1 large leek sliced
2 medium potatoes (fist sized) diced
450 ml Vegetable Stock made with 1 stock cube, I use Knorr reduced salt ones
1/2 cup 1% milk
Melt butter in a saucepan and cook garlic, chilli, onion, leek and potatoes for 5 mins. Pour in stock, bring to the boil and simmer covered for 30 mins.
Then add the 1/2 cup 1% milk and let heat through. Using a blender or blender stick puree and season to taste.
This is my adaptation of a recipe that is from The Really Useful Student Cook Book by Silvana Franco.
In my opinion it is delicious, I am going to try it soon by halving the fat content and also trying it with oil not butter as 30 g is about 2 level tablespoons which in my mind is quite a lot. However reducing the fat might make it taste less good.
