Notes

Find your Ingredients

Potatoes, leeks, garlic, onion, thyme - fresh fruit & vegetable aisle
Vegetable stock - herbs & spices aisle, I always recommend opting for stocks with fewer ingredients.. remember less is more when it comes to ingredient lists
Extra virgin olive oil - I can't go past my favourite brand Cobram Estate for the nicest range of olive oils.
