Leek and Potato Soup
Easy Leek and Potato Soup
Leeks are such a great addition to soup and you’ll love this hearty soup with potatoes and other fresh veggies. This recipe has been adapted from Jamie Oliver, but the measurements and ingredients have been varied.
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 carrots, peeled and chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
2 medium onions, peeled and chopped
1 cup cauliflower, chopped
2 cloves garlic, grated or minced
2-3 leeks, cut lengthwise, then rinsed and sliced
4-5 medium potatoes, peeled and diced
7-8 cups of vegetable stock
A handful of spinach or other greens, chopped
Salt and pepper
How to Make It:
Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium high heat. Add the carrots, celery, onions, cauliflower and garlic and stir to coat with oil. Jamie Oliver recommend putting the lid on askew and letting the ingredients cook for about 10 minutes this way.
Add the potatoes and soup stock and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium, put on the lid on the pot and cook for another 10 minutes.
Finally, add the spinach or greens and let cook for another 3 minutes or so, until they have softened. Season with salt and pepper and serve.
