  1. Heat the olive oil in a casserole over medium heat, and cook and stir the carrots, celery, potatoes and leeks until fragrant, about 5 minutes.
  2. Stir in the water and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer until vegetables are tender, about 20 minutes. Stir in the parsley and chives.
  3. Puree the soup using a hand blender, or in batches in a food processor. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Garnish with more herbs to serve.


If you use a food processor to puree the soup, work in small batches. Hot soup can splash out and cause burns.
