Sprog 2 is so-so on any soups that aren’t potato. A couple of slurps and she’s “full”. Although, there’s a special part of her stomach that’s still able to squeeze in 50 slices of bread. Not the most nutritious meal. So I decided to trick her last weekend by hiding lots of “yuk” veggies in her potato and leek soup. I snuck in cauliflower and – shock, horror – zucchini. She’s still none the wiser. And the soup was delicious.
RECIPE: Potato & leek soup (with hidden veggies)
2 leeks, white parts only, sliced
1.5 litres chicken stock
6 medium potatoes, peeled and roughly diced
1/2 small cauliflower, cut into florets
2 succhinis, peeled and chopped
1/2 cup sour cream
METHOD: Saute leeks in olive oil until soft. Add stock and vegetables. Simmer until tender. Remove from heat. Stir in sour cream. Puree with a hand mixer. Serve with a fresh cob of bread and butter.
