Which pesto goes well with this soup? 
Arugula Pesto is a great pesto choice as it doesn’t overdo the taste of the soup and is on a mild side

STEP 1: Wash all your veggies, peel the potato and chop everything in smaller pieces that are easy to blend 

TIP: wash your leek and broccoli in water with 4 Tbsp of vinegar to remove all the dirt and pesticides

Preheat your pot on medium heat with 1 Tbsp of olive oil and sauté leek for 2-3 minutes while mixing with cooking spoon to release the taste of leak 

Add broccoli, potato, 1 vegetable stock and cover with water
