Delicious Potato Leek Soup Recipe

leek and potato soup

Yep, I love soup. And especially when the weather is as lovely and cool as it is now. So, I thought of making this real simple leek and potato soup with a few other veggies thrown in. Since I like simple cooking, aside from chopping up, the soup was ready in just 15 minutes. Quick, easy, healthy and yummy, kids loved them as well. What more can we want?

Ingredients
  

  • 1 large leek take out the tough green leaves and chop up the rest after thorough washing
  • 2 potatoes diced into cubes
  • 1 onion chopped fine
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 small carrots chopped
  • 1 zucchini chopped
  • 1 tsp. butter
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. garam masala (optional) my Indian twist
  • salt to taste
  • Some water, vegetable broth or chicken broth if you have them. You could use a soup cube if you have it
  • 1 tbsp. finely chopped dill
  • 2 mushrooms for garnish

Instructions
 

  • Tip in the butter in a pan or a pot. Heat it. Put in the chopped veggies like leeks, onions, minced garlic, zucchini and carrots. 
  • Let them cook for 3-4 minutes. Put in the potatoes and water or stock.
  •  Let it come to a boil. Add salt and garam masala and let it simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Turn off the fire and blend it not too fine. Put the soup back in the pan and add milk. Boil for a couple of minutes more. 
  • Add finely chopped dill and freshly ground pepper. Taste and adjust seasoning. 
  • Add finely sliced mushrooms either sauteed or cooked in the boiling soup for about a minute.  Serve with toasted bread for a satisfying leek and potato soup.

Notes

  1. If you want potato leek soup vegan version then omit the milk and butter. Use stock and oil instead.
  2. If you can't find leeks, use spring onions in their place. You can also use more onion instead.
  3. This is a thick soup. Add more stock or water if it feels too thick.
  4. You could add other vegetables like beans etc. if you so desire.

First of all, I love having soups when it is such a suhana mausam. Secondly, this soup has my favourite garlic and thirdly, you serve it with sautéed mushrooms and toasted bread! The entire package is ‘to-die-for’ ! Bas, ab kitchen mein jaa kar banaega kaun!? Should I come over to your place? Remember the house -keeping service I offered in return of some yummy food cooked by you? That offer still stands…Hehehe! Loved this recipe, Rachna. Hoping to try it some day, when the cooking bug bites! ?❤

I make a similar version using potatoes, carrots and peas but I pressure cook it. This sounds incredibly tasty and oh, the weather today is screaming for it 😀 Thanks Rachna!

Sounds good. If you don’t have leek, you could use spring onion or just normal onion as replacement. 🙂
