Recipe type: Soup
Cuisine: Australian
Serves: 6
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 carrot chopped
  • 1 stalk celery chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 100 grams bacon, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 leeks, washed and sliced (use the pale portion only)
  • 500 grams potatoes (about 4 large potatoes), peeled and cubed
  • 1 litre vegetable stock (I used low salt chicken stock because it's what I had in the pantry)
  • ⅛ teaspoon pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons cream
  1. Fry bacon until done, add all the chopped vegetables and cook on medium-low heat until the carrots are soft. You don't want the onion or leeks to brown.
  2. Add the stock and then the potatoes and bring to the boil.
  3. Cook until soft - usually about 10 minutes with the lid on the pot.
  4. Remove from heat, season with salt and pepper and add the cream.
  5. Whiz with a stick blender until smooth.
  6. Enjoy!
