1.2 litres of vegetable stock
2 medium leeks, chopped
Salt and pepper

Firstly get two leeks and take of both ends off of the leeks then chop in half then in half again. Then peel off the outer skin then finely chop the leeks then put the leeks in a bowl of cold water.
Then get your half onion and take the skin off and put all the onion in a bowl of cold water.
Then add the vegetable stock and bring to the boil. Season well and simmer until the vegetables are tender then finely chop up about 5 chives.
