Remy’s Potato and Leek Soup
Whilst most would think to make Remy’s Ratatouille, I decided to make his marvellous potato and leek soup from the beginning of the movie.
- 1 Leek sliced
- 500 g Baby Potatoes peeled and chopped
- 1 Onion chopped
- 50 ml Single Cream
- 250 ml Vegetable Stock
- 50 g Butter
- 2 cloves Garlic minced
- 2 Ciabatta Rolls optional
Melt the butter in a large saucepan over a medium heat. Add the onion, leeks and garlic and cook for 5 minutes until the ingredients have softened.
Add the potatoes, salt and pepper and then stir. Cover the pan and cook for 5 minutes until the potatoes have softened too.
Add the vegetable stock and bring to a boil. Leave to simmer for 10 minutes.
Add the soup to a blender and blend until it has been puréed.
Once puréed, return to the saucepan and add the cream. Simmer until fully mixed and bubbling.
Serve with a sprinkle of chives on top. Optionally add some buttered ciabatta to the side.
