1 potato, 4 apples, 1 pint vegetable stock, 100g cheddar, 1/4 leek, butter
Whilst The Boy was away recently, I spent a week eating cheddar and apple sandwiches. I could not get enough of this flavour combination which evolved into this thick, comforting, DELICIOUS soup. I promise you won't be disappointed. It's almost as good as Rick Stein's delicious looking dick...
1) Finely chop about a quarter of a leek and sautee with just a little knob of butter.
2) Peel and dice the potato and apples, discarding the cores and add to the pan along with a pint of vegetable stock.
3) Simmer for 20 minutes, until the potato is soft enough to mash in the pan, then pass the mash and liquid through a sieve (discarding the leek) and back into the pan.
4) Grate the cheddar into it and season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Serve hot, with crusty bread.
