Super quick and easy family friendly soup! You can have a quick supper or lunch ready in just 30minutes.
I love leeks, they lend a sweetness to any dish and they are a great alternative to onions as they cook in half the time. The leaves on leeks are perfectly designed to trap soil, so take extra care when washing your leeks. (see note)
I have a lovely slow roasted leek & burrata cheese recipe here.
The leaves on leeks are perfectly designed to trap soil though, so take extra care when washing them (see kitchen note).
Frozen peas are super handy to have in your freezer, they are a welcome addition to soups, pestos, pasta’s and curries.
Getting Ahead: The soup can easily be made a few days before you want to serve it. If you are making the croutons, they can also be made ahead and stored in an airtight container for a few days ahead.
Freezer Friendly: Yes, absolutely.
Seasonal Swops: You can use any soft greens here like baby spinach or chard. I would avoid the harder kale varieties like curly or tuscan (cavalo nero).
