Leek and Pear Soup recipe

Ingredients:

2 leeks.
2 pears.
2 medium potatoes.
1 medium onion.
4 cups of chicken stock.
½ cup of cream.
1 ¾ oz of butter.
Salt and pepper, to taste.

Cream, to garnish.
Freshly chopped chives, to garnish.

Preparation Instructions:

Remove the dark outer leaves from the leeks and discard. Wash well to remove any dirt from between layers and chop fine.

Peel and chop the onions, pears and potatoes.

In a saucepan, melt the butter and gently sauté the onion and leek until soft.

Add pears, potatoes and chicken stock, bring to the boil, and simmer for 30 minutes or until the potatoes are tender.

Purée in a blender until smooth, reheat in a clean saucepan, then add the cream, salt and pepper. Thin slightly with milk if required.

Serve with an extra swirl of cream and freshly chopped chives.
