But first a funny story....... I served this soup up for dinner last night. When asked what flavour it was by Mr treehugger, I told him it was originally based on a recipe called Cock-a-Leekie. "Coq - spelt with a q - it's French then." To which I replied "No it's Scottish - it's spelt C.O.C.K ...." He asked me what it was made out of and I replied - without even thinking about it "Cock." There was so much snarfing going on that soup was snarfed across the table. Finbarr Saunders would have been proud. The recipe I used called for the carcass of a chicken. BLEURGH! I don't think so! Ain't no dead chickses going in my dinner thank you very much. So yeah....this is a traditional Scottish recipe veganised by yours truly. Enjoy!
