This is a little taste of home for me! This Leek and Potato Soup with Soda Bread is a recipe that my mum used to make and passed on to me.
1 large leek
1 stick celery
1/2 brown onion
Glass of white wine
Chop the leek, celery and onion and soften in a large glug of olive oil in a large saucepan. While cooking, peel and chop potatoes in large cubes. Once the onions are soft, add the potatoes, salt and pepper and the glass of wine. Once the alcohol has cooked off add in 500ml of chicken stock and bring to the boil. Simmer for 20 minutes. Once coooked, blend. If the consistency feels to thick please add a little boiled water. To serve place a little drop of creme fraiche in the centre. You can always add some fried bacon / pancetta too……
