Leek Soup

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by NancyAnne

Don’t let the name scare you! This soup is healthy and delicious. The original recipe called for creaming half of the soup, but we like it better chunky.

Needs lots of adjustments. We tried it as per the recipe and it wasn't what we had hoped for. We made some additions - 1 T. butter, 1 c. cream, 1/4 t. mace and one more garlic clove. That was better but still not what we wanted. Seems to need less leek and more potato and use half-and-half instead of veggie stock. That would mean cooking the potatoes in a different pan and adding them already cooked. Use mace or nutmeg instead of rosemary. Would probably be better if half of the leeks and potatoes were pureed after cooking to thicken the brew.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat a 4-quart soup pot over medium heat and add the oil. When oil is hot, ad the leeks, onion, and salt. Sauté for about 5 minutes, stirring often, until the onion begins to turn translucent.
  2. Add the garlic and stir well. Cook for another minute or so.
  3. Add the potatoes and vegetable stock. Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 20 minutes.
