Leek and Potato Soup

One of the simplest recipes I've ever uploaded here, but I couldn't resist it :) There's something nice and homely about the leek and potato soup. I like it chunky and without milk or cream, which makes it even quicker and easier. Enjoy!

  • 2 large leeks, chopped into small chunks
  • 3 small or 2 large onions, chopped into small chunks
  • 2 carrots, chopped into small chunks
  • 4-5 medium white potatoes, peeled and chopped into chunks
  • 3l of chicken stock
  • 3 tbsp of salted butter
  • 5 allspice berries, or 1 tsb of ground allspice
  • 1 tsp of ground black pepper

  1. Boil potatoes in salty water, drain and set aside.
  2. Melt the butter in a pan, add the onion and leeks and fry on medium heat for 10-20 minutes until the leeks are soft and the onions are glossy.
  3. Place the carrots, leeks and onions in a large pot. Add the stock, allspice and pepper and boil until the carrots are soft.
  4. Add the potatoes and heat up for another minute or two.
