FRUGAL LEEK AND POTATO SOUP

This leek and potato soup is simple and has only a few ingredients - and it's absolutely delicious! It makes enough for 4 bowls.

Ingredients:
1 tbsp butter, oil or margarine
2 leeks (trimmed and sliced)
1 large onion (peeled and chopped)
1 large potato (peeled and cubed)
1.5 litres of stock (I use a stock cube made up to 1.5litres)
100mls milk
Freshly ground black pepper

Method
Melt the butter in a pan and a gently fry the leeks, onion and potato until soft, but don't allow anything to colour or catch on the pan.
Add the stock and simmer on a low heat for 20 minutes. Take off the heat and add the milk. Whizz up with a stick blender or liquidiser and reheat if necessary - serve!
