  • In a large saucepan, melt the butter over a medium heat. Fry the leeks, garlic and shallots until softened.
  • Add the potatoes and cook for a further few minutes. Now add the stock and bring to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 20 minutes until the potatoes are tender.
  • Meanwhile for the croutons, heat the oil in a large frying pan and fry the bacon for 5 minutes. Then turn up the heat and add the cubes of bread. Toss the bread until it has turned golden brown, crisp and very crunchy. Place them onto some kitchen paper.
  • Transfer the soup to a food processor and blitz or use a blender to liquidise the soup.
  • Season to taste and stir the cream through and sprinkle with chives and the bacon & croutons. Serve with crusty bread, enjoy!
