Instructions
 

  • In a stock pot on medium heat add the olive oil cook the onions, garlic, oregano and leeks until soft. Around 3-5 mins.
  • Add the potatoes and cook for another couple of mins. Add the water and bring to a boil. Add the milk and reduce the heat. Cook on low flame until the mixture has reduced and everything is soft.
  • Blend the mixture and strain through a sieve. Season the soup one last time and add the cheddar and stir around.

Notes

  • You don’t need to strain the mixture but I prefer the texture.
  • Ensure to cook the mixture until soft, this will help blend it until smooth.
