    Made a lovely lunch today using bits and bobs in the fridge! I had the original idea of leek and potato, but it developed from there :D We very much enjoyed it, and I know it will freeze well too if you have any left over - this is creamy, comforting food at it simplest :)

    Leek, Parsnip and Sweet Potato chowder

    Serves 2 -3,
    one HA or 6 syns for total recipe

    2 leeks
    1 chunky parsnip
    1 sweet potato
    1 handful frozen peas
    250 ml SS milk (1 HEA or 6 syns)
    2 tsp chicken bovril (from a jar)

    Slice the leek and sweat it (soften without colouring) in a frylighted pan.
    Add the chopped parsnip and chopped sweet potato.
    Add the milk, one pint water, and 2 tsp chicken bovril.

    Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 20 mins.

    Set aside some of the chunks of vegetable, and blend the rest (I use a stick blender), return the chunks of veg to the pan and add a handful of frozen peas.

    Return the pan to the heat for just long enough to heat the peas.
