1 medium onion, finely diced
1 reduced-salt vegetable stock cube
1x 15ml spoon vegetable oil
150ml semi-skinned milk
Ground black pepper (optional)
A few chives for garnish (optional)
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.

Place the oil in the saucepan and add the onion.
