My partner works outside all the time which can be great in the summer but on a crisp winter day I like to give him a hearty hot meal to warm his bones and keep him going! So, here is my recipe in case you would like to try it.
Ingredients :- 3 leeks, 1 medium chopped onion, 1 large potato cubed or equivalent, 1 garlic clove, cayenne pepper, plenty of black pepper, 800ml of vegetable stock, 200ml ish of milk or cream, knob of butter, olive oil, fresh chives if available.
Mix up the stock separately and add to the pan. Stir gently and let this simmer until the potato has also softened. I do not add any salt as in my opinion the stock cubes have enough salt in them already but of course season to taste, as they say 🙂
Whilst still simmering and towards the end, mix in the milk and bring back to simmering point. I use skimmed milk but full fat milk or cream, if you are not too worried about fat content and want something a little more luxurious, work too
Thats it, a gorgeous, simple, economic, hearty warming soup to keep even the toughest guys warm from the inside out 🙂
Any comments, questions or suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thank you.
