A really easy and surprisingly good soup I made yesterday is a french potato soup called 'Potage Parmentier'.

A friend of mine emailed me the recipe and I just had to give it a try. Plus it was really simple, cheap and looked delicious!


  • 1kg potatoes
  • 800g leeks
  • 1,5l vegetable stock
  • 4 slices of toast
  • 2-4 tsp butter
  • fresh chives
  • 200g cream

First, peel the potatoes and cut into cubes of around 2cm.

Wash the leek and cut the white and light-green parts into small pieces.

Put potatoes, leeks and the vegetable stock into a big pot, boil and let it simmer for around 45minutes.

Cut the toast into smallish pieces and roast them in better - in other words make croutons. Then cut the chives into small roles.

When cooked, blend the soup, mix in the creme fraiche and heat up again.

To serve just put it into bowls and at the end add the croutons and the chives. Might have to salt a bit more before if needed.
