Ingredients

  • 2 stalks of leeks
  • 2 medium sized potatoes smaller cubes
  • 1 large carrot shredded and chopped
  • 3-4 cloves garlic chopped
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 1 celery stick chopped
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • dash of salt and pepper
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 1 tbsp Vegeta
  • 1 cup chopped ham in to small cubes (optional)
  • 1 litre water

Instructions

  • Wash the leeks and chop into ½” to 1” long pieces.
  • Cut cooked ham in to small cubes.
  • Chop other veggies and place all in a large pan to saute for 3-5 minutes in oil.
  • Add cubes of cooked ham and saute together with veggies.
  • Add 1L of water to the pot.
  • Add a dash of salt and pepper.
  • Keep cooking for 40 minutes to 1 hour on low temperature. Cook covered.
  • Check that veggies are soft. When close to soft texture, combine flour and vegeta in a cup, and add just enough water to melt the flour.
  • Pour the flour mixture over the cooked veggies and stir.
  • Continue stirring while waiting for broth to return to boil, approx. another 5 minutes.
  • If broth appears too thick, add water and alternatively, if it appears to be too runny, add more flour.
