leek and potato soup recipe

February is a good time to make soup with last year’s potatoes. One of my favourite meal-in-a-bowl soups for this freezing month is a chunky – not puréed – leek and potato soup with celery leaf, par-cel (if you grow it) or in a few weeks time, the first leaves of lovage.

Leek and potato soup sounds dull but with a good veg stock, it’s far from it. I like this soup quite solid but you can add extra stock if you prefer a more liquid version.
