Nourishing leek and potato soup

IMG_4943  IMG_4945  This weekend I went to Leeds to see my grandparents. In  preparation for Monday (Grandpa comes home from hospital)  my Mum was making leek and potato soup – Grandpa’s favourite – and I helped. First we picked the leeks from Grandpa’s garden.

Final result

Then we sweated and chopped the onions. While they were sweating we peeled and chopped the potatoes and cleaned and chopped the leeks. After that we put them in a big pan with some homemade chicken stock and let them simmer for a while – while we were having lunch out!  Finally we blended them together and added some parsley as a finishing touch. I hope Grandpa likes it !
