Heat the stock in a medium size saucepan, add the leeks and the potatoes and bring it to the boil stirring continuously.  Once boiling, reduce the heat and simmer on a low heat for approximately 20 minutes until the potatoes are soft.

Once cooked, allow the mixture to cool and using a blender or food processor, blend until smooth.
Prepare the avocado by placing them in a blender or food processor and blend into a puree.

Return the mixture to the saucepan and over a low heat, stir in the cream.
Remove the soup from the stove and add the avocado puree.  Stir well until completely blended.

While still hot, garnish with the chopped coriander and serve.

    I think this would be better if the potatoes and leeks were sautéd in olive oil for 10 minutes before the ‘cook’ section of the recipe… this releases more of their flavour.
