Leek and Potato Soup

Leek and Potato Soup

This simple yet much loved recipe, is a family favourite which has graced my family’s  table for a couple of generations.

My Grandmother, my Mother and now myself habitually place this on the table most especially during cold winter nights, when one craves the heat of a good home made soup.

As with the majority of recipes posted in this website, this recipe came for the much used pages of my Grandmother’s notebook, and is a tried and tested recipe, with all the ingredients for success (and yumminess).


1 big yellow onion
11 oz. – 225g potatoes cubed
2 medium leeks
1 litre vegetable stock
5 fl oz. cream or crème fraiche
1 tablespoon olive oil Salt and pepper to taste


Place Onion, Potatoes, Leeks, Olive oil, Vegetable stock into a deep pan.
Bring to the boil, cover and simmer for around 30mins.
Check the liquid level in your soup and add extra vegetable stock if needed (keep any extra vegetable stock warm as this helps to keep an even cooking temperature.
Once veg is cooked (test this by inserting a sharp point into the vegetables, it should enter smoothly). Add the cream or crème fraiche. Blend with an immersion blender until you have a puree.
Reserve some cream or crème fraiche to drizzle on top of your soup before serving.
