Antidote against the Recession/Depression!


LEEK Soup!

With the combo of the awful weather for July and the recession/depression here's a liquid solution that will at least temporarily kiss your woes away!

This takes about 45 mins for prep and to cook. All amounts are in plumber's terms.

Small lump of butter
Spuds (Comber are nice) by 2lbs
Small handful chopped chives
Even smaller handful of parsley (fresh please)
Chicken stock
Leeks x couple of bursts! wash and slice green and white bits (without the elastic bands)
Couple of Bay leaves
1/2pint of Milk
Salt and black pepper to suit

Into a large pot add the butter, onion and leeks and saute for 5-10mins stirring often. Then add the chicken stock, half of the milk, spuds, parsley and bay leaves bring to boil and simmer for half an hour. Remove bay leaves let the potion cool and then blend in a food processor to a puree. To serve asap just add the rest of the milk heat up and stir. Serve and springle with chives
