    Hey! I'm George from the New Covent Garden Soup Co. and we're running a Soup of the Month competition that we'd love you to enter. (http://bit.ly/pr3bK1 ) Potato and Leek soup is a great comforting soup, as well as being an awesome immune system booster - this would make a great entry into our 'recovery' theme this month!

    I add some hard mature cheese like parmesan or cheddar as a garnish to make the dish even more savoury! I always use a good floury potato like Maris Piper, Kind Edward or a Rooster potato to get a nice smooth texture for this recipe.... See britishpotatoes.co.uk for more info on varieties & recipes.....

    First soup I had attempted and found it very easy to make.
