autumn comfort food potato leek soup


  1. Place all ingredients except pepper and salt in large pot and cook covered for about 1 hour.
  2. Remove chicken bones if were used, mix soup with hand blender, season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Serve to the bowls with home-made bread on a side.

Serves 4 – 6 people.


I served it with Crunchy Semolina Bread a la Jamie Oliver but it would taste also good with fresh bread with Garlic and Parsley Butter.

  1. You can never ever go wrong with potato and leek soup can you? Yum.

  2. My mom loves leeks… I can’t wait to surprise her with this recipe ! Thanks.

  3. I discovered leeks last winter and they are now a favorite. I never found a good potato leek soup recipe last winter – but this one sounds like a winner. This will be at the top of my list as I begin the search for new soups to get me through the fall and winter!

    Sounds like a good recipe for someone with a cold or flu! I’ll try it today but will use fresh garlic and other fresh herbs too. Thanks for the recipe.
