    As a change from leek and potato soup try leek and asparagus soup. There's nothing like it on a cold day in my opinion.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 4 

    • 8 cups (2 litres) salted water
    • 500g asparagus, cut into 3cm pieces
    • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
    • 500g leeks, sliced
    • 1 large onion, diced
    • 3 cloves garlic, diced
    • 3 1/2 cups chicken stock
    • salt, to taste
    • 2 tablespoon fresh cream, to serve

    Directions
    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:40min  ›  Ready in:55min 

    1. Bring salted water to the boil. Add the asparagus and cook 1 minute. Drain asparagus and set aside.
    2. In a separate saucepan, heat the olive oil. Saute the leeks, onion and garlic. Add chicken stock and asparagus. Simmer, covered, 30 minutes.
    3. Let cool then puree soup in a blender. Reheat and add salt to taste. Serve, drizzled with a little cream.
