Toddler food: leek and potato soup

I make this soup a lot, especially in the winter. It’s cheap, it’s easy and it’s super healthy. The kids absolutely love it! Its a brilliant way to get loads of veggies in them and it’s really filling and especially nice with crusty bread on a cold day! I make lots of it and then put a tub of it in fridge for the next day and freeze some. It’s perfect for toddler lunches!

Ingredients:

225g potatoes in small chunks
3 leeks
large onion, sliced
1.5 pints vegetable stock
Teaspoon of butter or splash of oil

Put the butter in a saucepan and lightly brown the onion. Add the potatoes and leeks and vegetable stock and leave to cook until all the veg is soft. Take it off the heat and whack it all in the blender until it is as smooth as you want it – we have outs quite thick and chunky.

We eat quite a lot of homemade soup so watch out for more recipes!
