Simple Leek and Potato Soup Recipe (vegan)

Processed with VSCO with a5 preset

One of my favourite comfort foods is my homemade Leek and Potato soup recipe. It’s a simple but effective homely soup that I make at least once a month. I also occasionally double the batch and freeze some for those days you really cant be assed to cook and just need to grab something from the freezer.

Prep time: 10 mins Cooking time: 40 minutes

Ingredients to make the soup:

  • 2 Leeks
  • 3 medium sized potatoes
  • 1 onion
  • 2 veg stock cubes
  • 1 litre of boiling water
  • 1 tsp of garlic puree (or chopped garlic)

Serves 4 small bowls or two big ass bowls

  • Chop the leeks and onions into chunks or as finely as you please and fry in a large sauce pan with a tiny bit of oil for 5-10 minutes until lightly brown.
  • Peel and chop the potatoes into chunks and add them to the pan with the onions and leeks for a couple of minutes and then add the boiling water and stock cube and season generously and add your garlic.
  • Leave to boil for 30 minutes until the vegetables are soft. Add more water if needed
  • Take off the heat and serve with crusty bread. Tastes even better the next day warmed up and if you prefer your soup smoother you can stick in a blender before serving.
