Looking for an easy, delicious soup recipe? Try this comforting leek & potato soup made in a Morphy Richards soup maker. Perfect for lunch or dinner!
Prep: 5 mins
Cook: 30 mins
225g potatoes, peeled and cut into 1cm pieces
1 small onion, cut the same size as the potatoes
1 large leek, sliced
450ml light chicken or vegetable stock
60ml whipping cream, plus a drizzle to serve
60ml whole milk
small knob of butter
finely chopped chives
Step 1: Put the potatoes, onions, most of the leeks (keep a handful of the white leek for later) and chicken stock into your soup maker and press the 'smooth soup' button. Make sure you don't fill the soup maker above the max fill line.
Step 2: Once the cycle has complete, add most of the cream and all the milk, blending again briefly. Use the 'keep warm' function to keep your soup warm while you make the topping.
Step 3: Finely shred the remaining white part of the leak. Heat the butter in a small frying pan, and gently cook the leek for a few minutes until it's softened, but not coloured.
Step 4: Drizzle the remaining cream over the soup, top with the leeks, a few chives and some black pepper to serve.
