Leek and potato soup
Put the chives in a cup and snip into small pieces with your scissors. They will be used as a garnish.
Peel and chop the potato into small pieces.
Remove the green top and root end of the leeks, discard the outer layer and wash. Slice into 1cm pieces.
Wash the leek slices and drain well in the colander.
Peel and finely chop the onion using the claw technique.
Pour 750ml boiling water into the measuring jug, crumble in the stock cube and stir with a wooden spoon to dissolve.
Place the oil in the saucepan and add the onion.
Remember to freeze any portions you don’t eat this time to save them from going in the bin. A great time saver for a simple meal another day when you may be busy.
Defrost your frozen portions in the fridge and use within 24 hours, or in a microwave on 'defrost' directly before use.
