    1. In a large casserole dish, melt the butter then add the onion and garlic. Cook and stir for 5 minutes until soft, but not browned. Add the potatoes and leeks and stir to coat in the butter. Add the stock and simmer gently for 1 hour until the vegetable stock has reduced by half. Add the cream and the cheese and stir until melted.

    Diolch! this was great! I followed it broadly although I did change the quantities a little bit to our taste. Lovely treat for tea on Dydd Gwyl Dewi! 😁  -  03 Mar 2018
