Quick Leek and Potato Soup with Parmesan Crackers

This is a really quick and easy leek and potato soup recipe that makes a truly warming and hearty meal in the winter months. It’s quick because everything is blended at the end so there’s no need for careful chopping. The thinly sliced potatoes, mean that they cook really quickly and it’s all done in less than 20 minutes. Leftover, cold meat could also be added or maybe a poached egg for some extra protein. My lot like something to dip with a bit of crunch, so we came up with these tasty parmesan crackers that can be broken up like croutons or used to dip. Any leftover soup can be easily frozen so I often make a double batch and freeze some for ‘dinner emergencies’!!

Buzymum - Quick Leek and Potato Soup with Parmesan Crackers

Ingredients:

  • Splash cooking oil, I use rape seed
  • 1 medium leek, roughly chopped
  • 2 large garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  • 4-5 medium potatoes, peeled and sliced as thinly as you can
  • 2 pints of hot stock, I use 1x chicken and 1x veg cube (remember, Knorr stock cubes are all gluten free)
  • 1 tbsp dry, mixed herbs
  • Salt and pepper

Method:

  • In a large saucepan gently fry the leek in the oil until softened

  • Add the garlic and keep stirring for a couple of minutes to prevent burning
  • Add the potatoes, herbs and hot stock and bring to a boil for 8 minutes

  • The potatoes should now be cooked through
  • Whizz with a hand-held blender
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste -I often find that it doesn’t need any salt because of the stock cube!
  • Sprinkle the grated parmesan over the cracker and place under a hot grill for 2-3 mins, keep an eye on it!
  • Once the cheese begins to brown, they are ready

  1. This made me smile, because I made leek and potato soup a few days ago, but mine took about 7 hours because I made it in my slow cooker! Love this version, really does look so quick to make! x #KCACOLS
