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!
