Winter Minestrone with Butter Lovin’ Leeks – Dani Valent

Without this soup, my winter would be a whole different story.

With this buttered leek minestrone in my life, winter is cosy, hearty and satisfying. I’d love you to give it a go!

Sometimes, when I feel like a bit of meditative chopping, I’ll cut the vegetables by hand. If you don’t have a Thermomix, you can do that too, and simply cook it up in a nice, big pot.

I love my Elk top & Obus pants
