Original – syn free per serving (substitute the potato for butternut squash or swede)
1 onion, chopped finely
2 cloves of garlic, crushed
1 leek, sliced finely
2 sticks of celery, chopped
2 carrots, chopped
300g of potato, peeled and chopped into small cubes
1 litre of chicken or vegetable stock
2 bay leaves
couple of sprigs of fresh thyme (or 1 tablespoon of dried)
salt and pepper to season
Frylight or Pam spray
Spray a large saucepan over a medium heat with some Frylight or Pam spray and add the onions, garlic, leek, carrot, celery and potato.
Cook until slightly softened. Stir in the thyme and Bay leaves
Add stock and bring to a boil
Reduce heat and simmer for approx 1 hour.
Roughly blend some of the soup with a hand blender, (or half the soup to a traditiona blender) I like to keep some chunks of vegetables, as it makes a better soup. But you can blend it all if you prefer.
Season with salt and pepper as needed.
