Leek & Aspargus Soup

One of my favourite, but very bold treats is a Knorr Asparagus CupaSoup!!

I decided to use up some fresh vegetable in my fridge and make a pot of soup and see if I could recreate the taste!

It isn’t quite cream of asparagus with croutons, but it’s fresh and tasty and a warming mug to stave off the snack cravings!

You will need:
1 large leek, trimmed and sliced
2 packs of asparagus spears
1 clove garlic
1 medium potato peeled and chopped
1 courgette chopped
2 chicken or veg stock cubes
2 litres approximately of water (boiling)

– sauté all the veg together for a few mins then add half of the water, stock cubes and season with salt and pepper, I like to just cover the veg at this point and add more water as needed following blending
– bring to the boil and reduce heat, simmer for 20 mins or until veg is soft
– blend, add more water until it is at your preferred consistency, check for seasoning and pour a big mug 🙂
