Prep/Cook: 10/40 min     £1.00     Difficulty:     Serves: 6

Ingredients

-       5 large potatoes (any variety)

-       4 large Leeks

-       1 Tbsp of vegetable spread

-       1 White onion

-       Salt and Pepper to taste

-       2 vegetable stock cubes

-       1 Garlic Clove

-       500ml of Coconut milk (can use any milk)

Method

  1. Peel the potatoes and boil until they are soft enough to mash
  2. Melt the butter in a saucepan, chop up the leeks and add them, add the garlic and cook until the leeks are soft, and onions are turning brown
  3. Mash the cooked potato and add it to the cooked leeks and onion
  4. Add the coconut milk and 500ml of vegetable stock to the potato mixture
  5. I use a blender to combine all of these ingredients, you might need to fill the blender a couple of times as there is a lot of mixture, you can alternatively use a hand-held blender, blend and the end result should be a thick gooey soup!
  6. Put this mixture back onto the hob and season with salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy!
