Leek & Potato Soup

Thick, substantial and warming, leek and potato soup is an easy choice for a cold day’s lunch. This recipe takes extra flavour from chicken stock, marjoram, thyme and carrots, along with the familiar white of leeks and potatoes. All these yummy ingredients are liquidised and then blended with skimmed milk and cornflour then heated until they thicken. Serve with fresh crusty bread and Flora Buttery for a real treat.
