Leek & potato soup ingredients.

My recipe for leek & potato soup.

Leek & Potato Soup.


  • 1 kilogram of white potatoes.
  • 5 leeks.
  • 2 bay leaves.
  • 1 teaspoon of dried thyme.
  • 6 cups of vegetable broth.
  • 10 fluid ounces of double cream.
  • salt & pepper to taste.
  • 2 teaspoons of minced garlic.


  1. Clean & chop the potatoes into small pieces. (I didn't peel mine but you can.)
  2. Clean and chop the leek into small slices.
  3. Melt butter on low heat in a large saucepan. 
  4. Add the leeks & garlic heat on low until the leek has softened, don't allow it to brown.
  5. Add the potatoes, thyme & bay leaves along with the 6 cups of vegetable broth, salt & pepper to taste.
  6. Bring to a boil & then turn down the heat to simmer until the potato is soft (I allowed mine to simmer for half an hour).
  7. Remove the bay leaves.
  8. Using an electric blender, puree the leek, potato & broth until it is smooth.
  9. If soup is too thin, simmer until it has thickened, if it is too thick add some more water or stock.
  10. Once smooth add the cream & blend.
  11. Warm through & serve with crusty bread.

I loved this soup & will definitely make it again. Great for those colder days when you need something to warm you up.
