Potato and Leek Soup



750g potatoes – I used organic potatoes from Abel & Cole (washed and cubed)
5 vegetable cubes (10g each)
10 cups of boiling water
750g leeks – I used organic potatoes from Abel & Cole (cut lengthwise, washed and chopped coarsely)
3 tbs olive oil
black peppercorns
½ cup single or double cream
a little bit of raw chopped leek for garnish – optional
ciabatas to serve


hand blender
large pot with cover


Place leeks, potatoes and olive oil in a large pot and cook stirring constantly until vegetables get hot. Reduce fire, add water, cubes and cook covered until potatoes are soft. Remove from fire, add cream and blend using hand blender. Share to the bowls, sprinkle with freshly ground pepper and optionally some raw chopped leek for garnish. Serve with  fresh bread on a side, I used ciabata with herbs.

Serve 5-8 people.


  • Abel & Cole is a company that deliver to your door organic, seasonal food. Their products come from over 120 British farmers, bakers and producers – as well as some further afield (for Fairtrade bananas, coffee and chocolate). But they never air freight!
