Method

Based on a popular 1940's wartime soup this Oxford Potato Soup recipe has been recreated for today's families. A warming, healthy soup of potatoes, onions, leeks and celery - it tastes delicious!

  1. Heat the oil in a saucepan then fry the leeks, celery and onion over a gentle heat for 5 minutes.
  2. Add the diced potatoes and thyme.  Fry for a further 5 minutes.
  3. Stir in the stock and bring to a gentle simmer.  Cover and cook for 30 minutes until the vegetables are soft then blend until smooth.
  4. Loosen with a little more stock if too thick. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Serve in warm bowls garnished with the parsley.
