Leek and sweetcorn soup

For a simple (and hopefully nice) bowl of warming soup on a cold day:

3 small or 1 large leek/s

1 small tin of sweetcorn

1/2 white onion

Up to 1 pint of chicken stock (vary according to preferred thickness)

2 tablespoons of olive oil

Salt and pepper

After slicing leeks and onions, gently fry in a non stick pan in the oil for a few minutes until start to soften.

Then add sweetcorn, chicken stock, salt and pepper. After bringing the stock to the boil, soup is then ready to be blended.☺

Enjoy your "hug in a mug" moment!☺

  • Good recipe. For extra ease bung everything in a soup maker, press smooth and come back 21 mins later to perfect soup every time. I bought mine in October and have used it weekly since. Makes 4 good size portions

  • Thanks Ella☺

    Usually it takes around 10-15 minutes to do including preparation so its pretty quick. I could see why using a soup maker is a good investment when using it weekly.

    Would love to hear some ideas☺

  • I don't own a blender so for me it made sense plus I don't have to stir it which is good because whilst I don't eat processed food anymore I am still a lazy cook.

  • Love homemade soup, make some most weeks, this one sounds nice will give it a go, thanks for posting the recipe 😊

  • You're most welcome. Let me know how it turns out☺

  • Oh Brill, I have some leeks in the fridge. Thanks for the idea 🌽

  • Hmmm, 😋 sounds tasty!

  • Sounds good and easy I am going to give it a go.
