DIRECTIONS

  • Have the hot stock ready and add to the cooked vegetables.
  • Cook for a further 5 minutes, then add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Blend till smooth in blender.
  • Enjoy.
  • This recipe is a real work-horse; you can ring the changes using other vegetables, like celery, carrot, etc.
  • Just use them instead of the leeks and you'll have'cream of celery','cream of carrot'whatever.
  • You can make it part-chunky or smooth in the blender.
