    1 large potato, peeled & sliced
    3 medium leeks, trimmed & sliced
    a little butter
    a little olive oil
    2 cups water
    1 cup milk
    salt, pepper & fresh parsley to taste


1. Melt butter with oil. Fry leeks & potatoes for 10 mins
2. Add water to pan with leeks & potatoes. SImmer for 10-20 mins until vegetables tender.
3. Puree in a blender or with hand blender, then stir in milk.
4. Season to taste. Ideally use white pepper as black adds unappealing black specks to the soup.

If you like, add a swirl of cream or natural yoghurt to the soup before serving. Lovely as a hot or cold soup.

    I like the soup but found it a little weak. Next time, I'm going to add vegetable broth instead of the water and see how it goes. - 6/1/12
