    • 2 medium potatoes, peeled and diced

    1. Trim leeks, split lengthways and cut up quite finely. Wash thoroughly and drain well.
    2. In a large thick based saucepan gently melt margarine. Add leeks, potatoes and onion, stirring to coat all the vegetables. Season with salt and pepper, then cover and let them sweat on a very low heat for 15 minutes.
    3. Add the stock and milk, bring to simmering point, replace the lid and very gently simmer for a further 20 minutes or until vegetables are soft.

    5. Return the soup to the saucepan and gently reheat.

    Cook's notes

    Hope you enjoy, the soup as much as my family does. Snipped chives and a swirl of cream add that touch of luxury this soup deserves. Tastes just as nice when returned from the freezer.
