With the colder months rolling in, out goes the salads in our house and in come the soups.
We brought a Morphy Richards sauté and soup maker last year and like most kitchen gadgets it has started to gather dust in one of our cupboards.
With us both working at home now we are trying to get into the habit of using up left overs for our lunches and soup is the perfect way to use up vegetables etc that are past their best.
One of our favourite soups this week has been our homemade leek and potato soup. It is easy to make and this recipe will feed 4 comfortably. So you can either keep it in the fridge for the next few days or it can be frozen and used at a later date.
We make this in our soup maker however it can be done on the hob, you will just need a blender at the end to make it smooth.
- 1 leek sliced
- 1/2 red onion diced
- 3 potatoes cubed
- 3 vegetable stock cubes
- 1100 ml hot water
- salt and pepper
- Using the sauté button, cook the leeks and onions for a few minutes
- Add the water, stock and potatoes and mix well
- Season well
- Pop on the lid and set the machine off on smooth
- Wait for 22 minutes for it to finish its setting
This is such a simple recipe but delicious at the same time. Perfect for warming you up on a cold winters day.
We are bringing lots of winter warmer recipes to the blog along with some sweet treats too in the coming weeks so make sure you don’t miss them!
