Peel and rinse the leek, carrots and potatoes.

Slice the leeks thinly, then cut the carrots and potatoes into julienne sticks.

Rinse the potatoes again to remove the starch released by cutting.

Stage 4 - 4 min.

Boil the carrots in a large pan of salted water. Cook until barely tender.

Take out of the pan and cool in very cold water to stop the cooking.

Stage 5 - 3 min.

Using the same water, cook the potatoes next to the same barely tender stage. Cool in cold water like before.

Stage 6 - 3 min.

Still using the same water, boil the leeks but do not overcook or they will lose their lovely green colour.

As they are thinly sliced, they will cook rapidly.

Stage 7 - 5 min.

Drain all the vegetables thoroughly.

Tip: do not throw the vegetable cooking water away as it is now a good vegetable stock.

Stage 8 - 1 min.
