    probably wrong time of year now (mind you with the weather we've been having...) but i love making this soup, it's quick cheap & easy, and always delicious,
    you need about 8 medium spuds, 2 medium onions and 2 or 3 large-ish leeks,
    cut the onion really chunky and start shallow frying gently, then cut the potato into fairly large cubes and put half into a pan of boilign water. Wash the leeks then cut them into really chunky pieces & chuck them into the pan with the onions, When the leeks and onions have started to soften throw in the other half of potatoes, loads of vegetable stock and LOADS of black pepper, stick a lid on it and leave it to simmer til the spuds are cooked through and start to go a bit mushy. then take the potatoes that you've boiled seperately and mash them (no milk or butter) and add to the soup. This makes it really thick and filling. Then serve with more pepper (it goes so well with the leeks!) and lots of thick fresh crusty bread! :drool: yum!

    Here's a recipe for my favorite vegetarian dish:

    African Stew:

    4 cups vegetable broth
    1 onion, chopped
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    1 can (cooked) chickpeas
    1/2 cup brown rice
    1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
    2 cups chopped kale
    2 tablespoons lemon juice
    soy sauce
    chili powder

    Saute onions and garlic in a little bit of the broth until tender. Add remaining stock, chickpeas, and rice. Simmer for 35 minutes or until rice is just done (add more water if needed). In a small bowl, blend the peanut butter with 1/2 cup liquid from stew to make a smooth paste. Stir into stew; add lemon juice, a tablespoon or two of soy sauce, and chili powder to taste. Add kale and cook just until wilted.
