- If you prefer this soup smooth, chop potatoes, leeks and onions into 1cm pieces maximum size to help ensure a smooth soup after blending. You can of course enjoy this soup chunky also.
- Soup Makers are a kitchen dinner winner for quick convenience using your fresh produce for a warming healthy and hearty appetiser. You can ‘chuck’ all your ingredients in and press the button!
- However, if you are making soup the traditional way on your hob, here’s how:
- Soften the onions in some oil in a large pan and then add your chopped potatoes and leeks plus water and bring to the boil. Let the vegetables simmer until cooked. You may want to reduce or add to the amount of water. Add cream (to your liking) or milk for a healthier alternative. Add your sprinkled stock cubes, stir in and add pepper (however much or little as you like). For added luxurious flavour you may wish to add a knob of butter!
- You can leave chunky, manually mash or blend for a completely smooth soup. You can add water/milk or cream if it’s too thick or thicken your soup up with added cooked potato, an extra stock cube – allow to simmer until you’re happy with the flavour and texture – taste testing for best results! Transfer to a blender for a lump-free liquid soup and back to the pan and heat before serving. You can garnish your poured soup with a swirl of cream and/or croutons or perhaps a sprinkling of your favourite herbs such as parsley.
- 20-30 mins prepping and cooking time.
- Fab for the flask to take to the allotment on a cold day!
