Disney movies are full of foods that we dream of tasting. Some of which you can try in the Disney parks like the interesting ‘Grey Stuff’ from Beauty and the Beast, which is being served in the Be Our Guest restaurant.
But, if you can’t make it to the parks, you can find easy ways of bringing the magical dishes to your own kitchen.
One dish I have always wanted to try from watching the movie was the soup from Ratatouille which Linguini ruins and Remy miraculously fixes!
It looks like a creamy, vegetable soup filled with tasty herbs and flavours.
So here is a warm delicious soup that is perfect for the cold weather and would make Remy proud!
Remy’s perfect potato and leek soup
For this recipe, you will need
3 Yukon gold potatoes (which need to be peeled and chopped)
1 medium yellow onion (chopped)
55g of light cream
240ml of vegetable broth
45ml of butter
2 gloves of garlic (minced)
2 tbsp of chives (chopped)
1/2 tbsp of salt
1/2 tbsp of black pepper
You will also need a blender or a food processor to blend all the ingredients together.
Melt the butter in a pot over a medium heat
Add the leeks, onion and garlic and cook for about 4-5 minutes, or until the ingredients have gone a bit soft
Add your potatoes, salt and pepper, stir the ingredients and leave the pot covered and cooking for 5 minutes, or until the potatoes have gone soft. (you can also add cayenne if you want to make it a little spicy!)
Add your vegetable broth and bring the whole mixture to a boil, cook until the potatoes have gone completely soft, this should take about 10 minutes
Now, add your soup to your blender in batches to bring all of your ingredients together and put back into the pot once each batch is pureed. When it is all pureed and back in the pot, stir in the cream and cook for an additional 5 minutes so it warms back up.
Pour into bowls, sprinkle on the chives and enjoy!
