  • 1 tsp coconut oil or olive oil
  • 2 cloves crushed garlic
  • 2 large leeks , sliced and rinsed.
  • 3 baby potatoes , skin on
  • 1 litre water
  • 3 tsp reduced salt vegetable stock/ bouillon powder
  • 1 x 410g beans (cannellini or borlotti)
  • Freshy ground black pepper
  1. Heat the oil in a pan and gently saute the sliced leeks and crushed garlic for 3 minutes.
  2. Add the diced potatoes, water and vegetable stock.
  3. Cover the pot and simmer for 15 minutes until the vegetables are tender.
  4. Add the beans, and if you would prefer a smooth thick soup you can blend it at this stage. I prefer to leave the vegetables whole.
