Meatless Monday: Easy Leek & Potato Soup

Mummy’s Fast & Easy 

Who doesn’t like hot and creamy soup on a cold and rainy day?

Today is just one of these days so I’m cooking a nice veggie soup – leek, potatoes, cheese and cream.
I think leeks are so appetising and really good with pork but because today’s Meatless Monday the recipe is vegetarian but still as good.:)
It’s so simple and so tasty  – just puree the veggies, add milk, cream and cheese and voila – 15 minutes and you’ve got healthy and nutritious lunch!

Here’s what you need.

  1. In a pot, place the veggies, cover with water and bring to a boil. Simmer for about 15 minutes or until the vegetables are cooked.
  2. Add the milk and puree them with a blender. Season with salt and pepper and stir well.
  3. To serve – drizzle some double cream, add some shredded cheese and top up with the chopped parsley.

Tip: Well, if you can’t really go without the meat, add some crispy bacon pieces.:)
