  • Cooking time: 45 Minutes
  • Serves: 4-6 Sides


  1. Heat oil and butter in a large frypan over medium heat. Add onion and garlic, fry until translucent. Add potatoes and leeks and continue to fry for a further 5 minutes.
  2. Pour in chicken stock and water, cover and bring to the boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook for around 30 minutes or until potatoes are soft. Stir occasionally to prevent ingredients from sticking.
  3. Meanwhile fry chorizo in a small frypan over medium high heat until browned and crispy.
  4. When ready, remove soup from heat and use a stick blender to blend soup to desired consistency. Add in cream and stir through well.
  5. Serve hot topped with crispy chorizo and fresh parsley. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
