Traditional Hob Method
In a pan over medium heat, add the oil (and butter if using). Then add the chopped leeks and onions and cook gently for 10 minutes until soft but not coloured.
Crush and add the garlic and cook another minute. Next add the carrots and potatoes and gently saute for another 1-2 minutes.
Next add the water and stock, bring to a boil then reduce heat to medium and allow to gently cook until potatoes are soft. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
If you would like a smooth soup you can blend with a stick blender. Otherwise it can be served as a chunky soup.
This recipe includes nutritional values for both the optional butter and oil.
Instructions are shown for both traditional method of cooking and also for using the Froothie Evolve High Speed Blender.
