Then chop it and make sure to chop it into the smallest pieces possible.
When you have finished with all that, it's time to start the actual cooking. Put the pan on a heater and set the heat to low, then add oil and butter and wait for a while until they melt and mix. Then add the leeks and stir them until they wilt. Put the tomatoes in the pan and increase the heat to high and let them stew.

The real final step is to add the seasoning herbs, put the lid and let the dish cook for about 30 minutes. When the thirty minutes pass take the pan and let it cool for a bit. After that, if you want you can use the electric blender to create a cream soup. The only thing you need to do is add the parsley and, of course, dig up.
