Penny's Leek Soup by Julie Forsyth

Today we do it differently.  Julie Forsyth from Grant & Forsyth has kindly shared her mum's Leek Soup. This is Penny's recipe made by Julie.
Julie Forsyth and Dominic Grant
50g (2 oz) butter
6 large leeks, chopped
3 medium potatoes, peeled and diced
900ml ( 2 pints) chicken stock (I use knorr chicken stock cubes )
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

How to put it together!:
Melt the butter in a large saucepan on medium heat,
sauté the Leeks (that have been cut in medium size chunks & washed) for a few minutes, stirring frequently.
Add the stock & potatoes and bring to the boil. Make sure the ingredients are fully covered
Simmer gently with lid for 30 minutes.
When the potatoes are soft, remove from the heat & Mash gently, then add the salt & pepper & a cup of milk
I don't blend it as We like it the way it is... But small kiddies will probably like it smooth...
Hope you like it everyone! It will keep you warm & healthy X x
