5 (400g) baby potatoes
3 leeks, green part only
½ tsp sea salt flakes
350g frozen winter vegetable mix (carrot, cauliflower, broccoli, beans)
1 (420g) can corn, drained
2 cups (500ml) chicken or vegetable stock

Peel and quarter potatoes. Cut leeks lengthways then slice finely.
Place butter in a large pot set over medium heat and melt. Add sliced leeks, salt and cook, stirring for 5 minutes. Add frozen vegetables, corn, stock and quartered potatoes. Increase heat, cover with a lid and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook for 20 minutes, until the potatoes are soft. Add cream and stir through, turn off the heat.
To serve, heat ¼ cup olive oil in a small saucepan until hot and fry sage leaves for 10 seconds until crisp, remove with tongs and set aside on paper towel.
Drizzle sage oil over sourdough bread and toast in a sandwich press until golden.
