I’m a real soup lover and none are complete without the addition of leeks. However, rather than just using leeks as a background flavour, I really want to bring it to life, and pair it with ingredients it really loves. Parsnips have a natural sweetness that work perfectly with the mellow flavour of leeks and chestnuts add a creaminess that nothing else will. This is the perfect winter soup that will keep you feeling warm and full all through the day.
This makes the perfect side dish to accompany any Sunday roast. British leeks work really well with a delicious creamy, cheesy sauce and the crumble topping. Made with a combination of oats and nuts this is something that will definitely wow your dinner guests.
