Homemade Potato Leek & Chorizo Soup

Posted on

I love soups and at this time of the year it is my lunch time favourite. Yes, I can buy a tin of soup for under £1 or so, but nothing beats a bowl of homemade soup. Besides when you have homegrown organic potatoes and onions in store, I only had to buy a small size leek and a few spring onions and chorizo.

This is one winter warmer soup I make time and time again and one which requires NO oil or butter!

Serves: 2 
Cooking Time: 20-30 minutes

400ml cold water
1   large floury potato 
1   small onion 
1   small leek
1   spicy chorizo
1   bird’s eye dried chilli optional      
1   spring onion ( to garnish)

  • Place water in a pan, add 100g piece of chorizo (do not slice keep the piece whole) to the pan 
  • Peel and roughly chop the vegetables add to pan 
  • and half of 1 chilli (optional)
  • Bring to boil, once it starts boil lower the heat and allow to simmer for 20minutes or until you notice the potato is falling apart.
  • Carefully remove the piece of chorizo with some tongs and place on a chopping board.
  • Take a hand held blender and blitz the liquid to desired consistency and return pan back to a gentle heat
  • Slice the chorizo about 1cm thick slices and add back to the pan to warm through. 
  • Add salt and pepper to taste and sprinkle chopped spring onions.
  • Serve hot with crusty bread.
