Ingredients

Method

1.

Heat butter and oil in large frying pan; cook leek, stirring, until soft.

2.

Combine leek, pumpkin, potato, stock and the water in 4.5-litre (18-cup) slow cooker. Cook, covered, on low, 6 hours.

3.

Cool soup 10 minutes. Blend or process soup, in batches, until smooth. Return soup to cooker. Cook, covered, on high, about 20 minutes or until hot. Stir in 1/3 cup of the cream. Season to taste.

4.

Serve soup topped with remaining cream and chives.

Be careful when blending or processing hot soup. Don’t over fill the container (one-third to half-full as a guide) and ensure the lid is secure.
