Leek soup


1. Ingredients: 1,5 litres of water, leek (2/3 big leeks or half a 350 g of frozen leek), 2 carrots chopped, 3-4 big red skinned potatoes chopped, 1 big white onion chopped, 3 garlic gloves chopped, 1 tablespoon of salt, 5 tablespoons of olive oil

2. Preparing & Cooking: Bring the water to the boil and add the garlic to start adding flavour to the water. Add the carrots, potatoes, onion and leek, and let them cook for about 20-25 minutes until becoming completely tender. Reserve for about 5 minutes to cool down, and then make a purée with a regular hand blender. Bring to the boil and add a few bits of leek along with the olive oil and let it cook for another 10 minutes.
