Classic Leek and Potato Soup

Some people might baulk at the idea of preparing a homemade soup but there are plenty of easy recipes out there, including this one! We’ve put this in the vegetables category but it can also be made with chicken stock to add a different flavour dimension, or even better, homemade chicken stock.


Classic Leek and Potato Soup

Prep Time:



Serves 4 People


£0.70 per Person



  • Ingredients

    1tbsp Olive Oil
    25g Unsalted Butter
    2 Leeks Finely Sliced
    2 Carrots Diced
    1.5l Vegetable Stock
    2 Baking Potatoes Peeled and Cubed
    Black Pepper

How to Cook

1. In a large saucepan or stock pot, heat the oil on a medium heat then add the sliced leeks, carrots and some salt. Cook down until they are soft and sweet to taste. This should take approximately 10 minutes. After 5 minutes, add the butter and stir through.

2. Pour on the stock then bring to the boil and simmer for another 5 minutes.

3. Put the potatoes in the stock mix and simmer for a further 10 minutes. Test a potato with a knife to see if they have cooked through.

4. Take the pan off the heat and using a hand-held blender, process until smooth.

5. Serve up in bowls with crusty bread. Of course, feel free to sprinkle with croutons, fresh parsley or even a splash of cream.
