Leeks are a special crop that comes in season in short intervals. It is commonly used in our Falafel but there are so many other ways to enjoy its freshness and uniqueness, like this Leek & Potato Soup.

This recipe can be ready in 30 minutes, and a perfect side dish to all protein.

  • 2 tablespoon olive oil - زيت زيتون
  • salt and pepper - ملح و فلفل
  • 1 tablespoon butter - زبدة
  • 4-5 garlic (minced) - ثوم
  • 2-3 sprig thyme (fresh & leaves only) - زعتر
  • 1 cup broth - مرقة
  • handful parsley (finely chopped) - بقدونس
  • 50 gram hazelnut (handful) - بندق

Step by step

  1. Heat olive oil in a large pan over medium. Add cut leeks. Season with salt & pepper.
