Recipe submitted by Charlie on July 26th, 2009

This delicious kiwiana soup makes for a great family lunch on a cold winters day.. Super easy to make and everyone will love it, even the kids!

Prep time:   10 minutes
Cook time:   2 hours
Servings:   6 - 8 people

1.5 kg or 5 medium sized kumara (purple)
2 large leeks
1 tbsp butter
1 L vegetable stock
1/8 tsp nutmeg
3 cups water

Peel, chop and roast kumara at 180 degrees for 1 hour.
Whilst kumara is roasting, finely slice leek and add to large soup pot with butter.
Cook leek very gently (sweat) on lowest heat for 20 mins stirring occasionally.. Leek should brown a little and caramelise. Remove from heat until kumara is roasted.
Blend roasted kumara and vegetable stock until smooth then add to cooked leek in soup pot.
Add water and nutmeg and mix well.
Cook covered on low heat for 30 mins.
Serve in large bowls with a splash of cream swirled through, enjoy with fresh toasted bread.
