Onion sum of calcium, fiber , iodine, magnesium, potassium, sodium, phosphorus and vitamins A, B7, B9, C and E.

We start by washing and cleaning the leeks, cut the white part into pieces. Peel the potatoes and cut them into pieces and do the same with the apples, peel them, remove the center and cut them into pieces.
We put a casserole over medium heat with a stream of Betis oil, add the leeks, sauté them for a few minutes until they are transparent and add the cut apples, season and sauté next to the leek for a few minutes.
Then add the potato and the broth, let it cook for about 20 minutes until everything is smooth.
When we have it ready, we remove a little broth and crush it, and depending on whether we like it thicker or more liquid we add it.
We return the cream to the fire, rectify salt and pepper, stir well and turn off.
We serve it in bowls and sprinkle with parsley or chives to decorate.
It can also be taken cold, so if you like cold you just have to put it in the fridge until serving time.
And ready to eat!
