Ingredients

For soup

  • tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 leeks, sliced
  • 400 g potatoes, roughly chopped
  • 1 litre vegetable stock
  • 150 ml double cream or crème fraîche
  • 1 tablespoon chopped Italian (flat-leaf) parsley
  • salt, to taste
  • freshly ground black pepper

For Welsh rarebits

  • 225 g grated cheese
  • 25 g softened butter
  • ¾ tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • ¾ tablespoon English mustard
  • tablespoons milk
  • 4 slices of toast

Instructions

  • To make the soup, heat the oil in a large pan, add the onion, leek and potato, and cook for four to five minutes or until softened and lightly coloured.
  • Add the stock and seasoning, bring to the boil, then cover and reduce the heat to simmer for 15 minutes or until the potato is tender.
  • Whizz with a hand blender to a smooth consistency then reheat, stir in the cream or crème fraîche and adjust the seasoning, to taste.
  • Meanwhile, to make the Welsh rarebit, crumble the cheese and mix with the butter, Worcestershire sauce, mustard and ale or milk. Spread evenly over the toast and cook under a preheated grill for one to two minutes, to melt the cheese and tinge brown in places.
  • Ladle the hot soup into bowls and garnish with chopped parsley. Cut the Welsh rarebit into triangles and serve with the soup.
