I love this soup because it is a delicious winter warmer and easy to cook.

Serves: serves 4-6

  • 4 leeks (washed & chopped)
  • 2 medium peeled and diced potatoes

  • ¾ litre vegetable broth (or chicken stock)
  • 296 millilitres milk
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 pinch of pepper

  • Melt the butter over a low heat, add the leeks, potatoes and onions and stir until covered in butter.
  • Season and ingredients, cover and sweat in the pan for 15 minutes on a low heat.
  • Add the stock & milk and simmer gently for 20 minutes.
  • When cooled, liquidize the soup, return to the pan and reheat.
  • Add a swirl of cream and serve with croutons.
  • Additional Information

    I've found letting the soup cool in the pan and using a hand held Liquidizer thingy is much easier and less washing up afterwards.

    • Thank you for sharing this recipe; I just made it, it is indeed hearty and very tasty. I was out of cream (I assume it is sour cream), so I don't have an opinion on that. I added a lot of salt and some lemon. And a piece of Greek feta cheese (the real thing) :)
