Prep time: 

Cook time: 

Total time: 

Serves: 5

  • 2 leeks
  • 1 onion
  • 6 washed potatoes (washed so can leave the skin on)
  • 4 cups chicken stock (or vegetable stock)
  • salt and pepper
  • cream (or sour cream) to stir through
  1. Dice the onion and leek, only using the white and pale part of the leek, discard the green part.
  2. Dice the potato leaving the skin on for extra texture.
  3. In a little oil in a BIG saucepan gently fry the onion, leek and potato for 5 minutes.
  4. Add the chicken (or veggie) stock and simmer with the lid on for 20-30 minutes or until the vegetables are soft.
  5. Season and mash as much as you like, I like mine to have a few chunks.
  6. Stir through cream (if desired) in each bowl.
