Welsh Soup Recipe and Meal Ideas

Leek Broth Recipe

The leek is the national emblem of wales. Luckily(for "foodies") it is also a fine vegetable which adds flavour to this hearty soup. A great recipe for a cold winters day, when only a good soup will do.

Leek Vegetable Broth Soup

a piece of salt bacon (to make stock)
2 large leeks, finely sliced
white cabbage, finely shredded
15 ml (tbsp) chopped parsley
30 ml (2tbsp) oatmeal (optional)
450g (1lb) carrots, finely diced
450g (1lb) potatoes, finely diced

Place the bacon, carrots and potatoes into sufficient boiling water to cover them and boil for one to one and a half hours, topping up with water as required. Remove the bacon and add the leeks, along with some finely shredded cabbage.

When the two vegetables are cooked until soft, add the chopped parsley and serve. Thicken the soup by adding the oatmeal according to taste.

As with all recipes which involve cooking and baking a sensible approach must be taken especially when dealing with warm or hot (temperature) ingredients. If you are unable to take due care, please do not attempt to make any of these recipes. All recipes are tried at your own risk.
