Leeks and Potato


Leeks and Potato Soup

Useful information:

(The first recipe of the New Year features the leeks, a vegetable that is present in many Welsh dishes)


2 large Leeks
1 medium Onion, finely chopped
3 tbsp. Butter
2 medium Potatoes, peeled and cut into half inch cubes
3 cups Chicken stock
1 cup Fresh heavy cream
dashes Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
few sprigs Chopped chives (optional)


Wash and remove the root end of the leeks, then cut off and discard approximately half of the green stems.

Slit the leeks several times lengthwise from the stem and rinse well under cold water because some leeks are rather muddy.

Chop the leeks and sauté them with the onion in butter, stir and cook for three minutes.

Add the potatoes and chicken stock and bring to a boil. then simmer for about fifteen minutes, or until the potatoes are tender.

Add the cream and bring to a boil. and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Serve hot, sprinkled with chopped chives, if you prefer.
