I know what you're thinking. This is probably the saddest looking bowl of soup you've ever seen. I didn't have enough time to dress the soup up. And considering "So between them both, you see, they licked the platter clean", I didn't have any leftovers. So it's not even like I could have dressed it up later for the photo shoot!
This was one hearty bowl of soup that came together in a very short time. I am sure I will make this very often. (Provided leek and celery prices remain within the "affordable" range!)
1 cup Leeks, chopped
1/2 cup Celery stalks, chopped
1 tsp Mixed Herbs (Parsley, Basil)
1 tsp Olive Oil
1 tsp Garlic, chopped
1 cup Milk
Salt and Pepper to taste
In a pressure pan, heat the olive oil. Add the garlic and fry for a minute. Add the leeks and celery and fry for 2-3 minutes. Now add the mixed herbs and 1 cup of water and cook for 2-3 whistles.
Cool the vegetable mixture and blend in a liquidizer. Transfer the contents back to a pan and add the milk. Bring to a boil. Season with salt and pepper and serve hot.
