Leek soup

This is a very easy and tasty soup. Great for cold winter days :)


  • 1 leek sliced
  • 1 courgette
  • 1 onion
  • 1/2 white cabbage
  • 2 garlic gloves
  • 1 small carrot
  • 5 tbspoons olive oil
  • salt q.b.
  1. Heat 3 tbspoons olive oil in medium fire, add the leek and let it cook for 3/4 min, stirring ocasionally. This step is quite important because the leek will release all its flavour.
  2. In the mean time prepare the other vegetables.
  3. Add all the other vegetables and cover with water.
  4. Add salt.
  5. Bring to a boil, turn down the fire and cook at a lively simmer until the vegetables are tender, about 30 minutes.
  6. Puree with a blender for a few minutes, adding the 2 tbspoons olive oil almost in the end.
  7. Thin with water if the soup is too thick.
Bom apetite! :)
