Making Leek and Potato Soup

My favourite soup is by far leek and potato, so I thought I would have a go at making it myself.

 

 

I used two leeks and two potatoes as it was only for Nic and I.  First I popped some oil and onion in a pan and left this to simmer while I shopped the other vegetables. 

 

 
 
I put all the chopped Vegetables into a colander so I could give them a good wash before putting them into the pan with the onions. 
 
I left this to soften slightly before adding 1/2 pint of vegetable stock to the pan. 

 

 
I then turned the heat down slightly and left this to simmer until the potato was all soft and mushy. 

 

 
After about 30 minutes I took the pan off the heat and let it cool before blending it until smooth. 

 

 
Once smooth I popped it back into a clean pan to reheat and seasoned with some salt and black pepper.
 

 

I then served with some nice fresh bread! 
 

 

Yummy!
