This sexy leek soup is light but full on flavour.Its real easy and quick to make.The key is to let the leeks cook and become delicously soft and just slide in your mouth without noticing. I DO NOT AGREE WITH THE BLENDING OF THIS SOUP!
2 cloves garlic,diced
knob of butter
1 tbs olive oil
2 medium sized leeks,sliced
1 large carrot,thinly sliced
tsp dried oregano
2 bay leafs
1 litre veg stock
1. heat your pot and add the oil an butter.Let the butter foam then add your garlic and shallot, colour it.
2. Add leeks and carrots and stir to combine,add oregano and bay leafs then cook for 10 minutes on a medium heat slightly covered.
3.add stock but do not cover leeks,bring to boil and simmer for 10-15 min until the leeks are soft and delicous and the carrot is cooked with a small bite.This makes a tasty base to the soup.
4. add the rest of the stock and simmer for 7min
5. meanwhile cut the bread into chunks and grill with some extra virgin olive oil until golden,add small bit of cheese and grill til melted.
