Comfort Food for a Rainy Day

When we woke this morning the day was already promising to be gray...and when we had had a week of sunshine I had hoped it would last the weekend so that I could do a little gardening.

I also woke with very bunged up sinuses so reeeeeaaaalllllly needed some comfort food for lunch....

It came in the form of potato and leek soup with fresh bread rolls.

Fry 2 bunches of leeks in some butter with a teaspoon of garlic.
Peel and dice 10 potatoes, add
Make a litre of vegetable stock from powder, add
Season with salt, pepper, thyme, nutmeg, mint

When potatoes are soft, blend it with hand blender and add a cup of cream.

Serve with hot bread rolls.

Yeah, comfort food ;-)

Hi there,

I make the roll dough in my bread's a dinner roll recipe. Will haul it out and write it up for you!

Oooh, that sounds so delicious! I often make leek and potato soup, but that recipe is definitely one I'm going to have to try :-)
