Leek and Potato soup

This winter warmer soup is very easy and quick to do yet tastes delicious! We started by peeling and roughly cutting the onions, garlic, leeks and potatoes. Saute in a little oil and then we added the potatoes and vegetable stock. We then let simmer for about 25-30 minutes, blitz it and voila soup is ready!

Ingredients       Makes about 2.5 litres
