    Cheap and easy to make.

    1 large or 2 smaller leeks, thinly sliced
    1 clove garlic, crushed
    1 floury potato (about 175g) diced
    410g can Cannellini Beans, drained and rinsed
    600ml hot stock (I made mine with a Stock Pot tub)
    Frylight
    salt and pepper
    chopped parsley

    Cook the leeks and garlic in Frylight for 5 minutes. Add the potato, beans, hot stock, and seasoning. Simmer for 20 minutes or until the potatoes are cooked.

    Using a slotted spoon, scoop out about a quarter of the vegetables. Puree the rest of the soup with a hand blender and then return the reserved vegetables to the pan. Heat through, check seasoning, sprinkle with chopped parsley.

    I have adapted this from a recipe in the Waitrose Christmas Cookbook. It says that it serves two people - I had one and a half bowls at lunchtime today and there is enough for another portion for tomorrow. Really thick and warming and very tasty.

    When I came to heat up the second portion I found that it was very thick indeed, so I thinned it down with some milk, and it was even nicer.

    I should warn people, though, that if you have a tendency to any windy problems when eating beans you should maybe avoid this one or save it for when you are eating alone!!
