One last winter themed recipe…I promise after this one i’ll get onto some hearty spring related recipes…

700G of Potato’s this would be roughly 4 big ones or 6 smaller ones – chopped into 2cm cubes
3 Leeks chopped finely
1 large brown onion halved and chopped finely
3 cloves of garlic
Pinch of Rosemary
3 large bacon rashers
Salt & Pepper
Dash of thickened cream & pinch of chives
Olive Oil
1 and 1/2 L of Veggie Stock

Add onion and 1 clove of garlic to the pot with some olive oil and cook for around 3 mins, then add leaks & potato and cook until leaks are soft.
Once leeks are soft add the veggie stock put on medium heat to boil
Meanwhile chop the bacon into cubes and cook with the other 2 garlic cloves & rosemary
Once bacon has cooked for a couple of mins add that to other pot then wait until spuds are soft.
Then blend the soup & serve while adding a dash of cream & chives
