Leek and Potato Soup
2lb potatoes cut into biggish chunks

2 leeks washed and chopped

1 oz butter

1 pint milk

1 pint ham or chicken stock

pinch nutmeg (more can be added later for taste)

salt/pepper (i use coarse black pepper)

2 egg yolks

chopped parsley for garnish




method

boil the potatoes in milk and stock, removing any scum from pan

add leeks, butter, nutmeg and seasoning

cover pan with lid and simmer gently until tender

liquidise in blender (or use hand blender)

return the soup to the wiped pan, check seasoning

bring back to the boil and add 2 lightly beaten egg yolks

stir well and serve with thick crusty bread.

*i also add a small tub of single cream at the end*


hope you enjoy it as much as we do

I think on a cold winters day, or if you are feeling low, nothing quite touches the mark like a steaming hot bowl of tasty soup.
Thanks for the recipe Arrian, I will endeavour to make it soon, sounds moreish.

We make a this almost every week, well to be truthful without the eggs and cream and about 1/2 the milk and only liquidize about half to leave it s bit chunky. Its wonderful with fresh bread.
