Boomer ate almost as much as me when we dined on this at grandpa and grannies house. Boomer liked eating the same as us and she grabbed my spoon to get at it (see tattie soup photo)
· equal quantities of leeks and potatoes
· olive oil
· vegetable bouillon powder (reduced salt)
Clean and chop the leeks into small pieces and sweat in the oil, over a medium heat, for about 3mins. Peel the potatoes and chop into small cubes, then stir in with the leeks for 2mins. Mix the stock to a strength that suits and add sufficient to just cover the leek/potato mixture Bring to the boil then cover and reduce to a simmer for 12/15mins. Liquidise but dont puree lumpy bits are interesting. Serve with crusty bread for the baby to dunk and season to taste for the grown-ups.
If you want Cream of Leek & Potato, then before serving stir in some milk, cream, or yoghurt.
