Ingredients
  • 50 g butter
  • 4 large leeks, finely chopped
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 2 medium potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 850 ml chicken or vegetable stock
  • 275 ml milk
  • salt and pepper, to season
Method
  1. In a large, thick-based saucepan, gently melt the butter, then add the leeks, onions and potatoes, stirring them all round with a wooden spoon so they get a nice coating of butter. Season with salt and pepper, then cover and let the vegetables sweat over a very low heat for about 15 minutes.
  2. After that, add the stock and milk, bring to simmering point, cover and let the soup simmer very gently for a further 20 minutes or until the vegetables are soft – if you have the heat too high the milk in it may cause it to boil over.
  3. Blitz with a stick blender until smooth and enjoy.
