Leek and Potato Soup

It snowed an awful lot here yesterday, and we woke up this morning to find that it was still here. I needed something comforting and soup was the obvious choice. After checking what food I had in, it was an easy decision, leek and potato soup. I also added some carrot and celery to give it depth of flavour. I think homemade soup can do wonders for us all. Why not have a go at making this very easy recipe?

1 large carrot
2 sticks celery
2 medium sized onions
500g leeks
450g potatoes
1.8 litres of vegetable stock
1 tsp oregano
Salt and pepper

Dice the carrot, celery and onions and thickly slice the leeks and saute in a little olive oil until the vegetables start to become soft. Add the oregano and give the mixture a stir. Dice the potatoes and add to the pan followed by the vegetable stock. Give everything a good stir and bring to the boil, simmer for 10 minutes until the potatoes are soft. Leave to cool slightly add salt and pepper to taste and blend till silky smooth.
