Winter Warmer - Potato, Parnsip and Horopito Soup

Dean Fountain

Optional bacon addition.

Prep Time: 20 minutes (honestly!)

Cooking Time: 45 minutes (but you don't have to stand over it)

best served with croutons or homemade bread (or the expensive stuff)

Serves 4

What you will need...

rasher of bacon - trimmed and diced

1 large onion - diced

2 cups of leek

2 large potatoes (or 500g) peeled and sliced 1cm thick

2 large parsnips (or 500g) peeled and sliced 1 cm thick also

1 litre of vegetable stock (get the more expensive stuff)

1 can of no-added salt tomatoes (doesn't matter if diced or whole)

1 1/2 teaspoon of horopito seasoning

2 tablespoons of chopped parsley for garnish (optional)


Okay this is an easy one...but you need a heavy based pan!

cook bacon until fat is transparent, takes about 3 minutes on medium heat.

add in the onion and leek, cover and saute for 10 minutes, shaking pan every 2-3 mins

add the potatoes, parnsips, stock, horopito seasoning and tomatoes.

bring to a boil - on a medium-low heat until vegetables are tender (approx 20 mins)

that's it ... its ready to eat...

some people like to chuck it in a blender - if that is your thing.. go for it!


quick tip: if you double the ingredients - you can freeze the rest for when you are in a rush!
