Simply the best Leek and Potato Soup

02 Oct

This is my fool proof recipe for Leek and Potato soup and there isn’t much to it at all! I don’t like the creamy blended soups so I had to come up with my own recipe to satisfy my soup cravings and this hits the spot every time. I will warn you though, it can tend to stink the house out so leave a window open or invest in a chefs candle!

Servings: Usually about 3 or 4

Syn value: Free on extra easy and green


  • 2 large leeks
  • 2 medium potato’s
  • 2 chicken stock pots or cubes
  • Pinch or two of mixed herbs
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • Pinch or two of cayenne pepper


  • Split leeks lengthways and give them a good wash.  Then slice up the lengths, as thick or thin as you want
  • Peel and chop the potato’s.  I usually make mine quite chunky.
  • Boil the kettle with about a litre of water and spray a large pot with frylight.
  • Fry the leeks until starting to soften.  Then add the potato’s
  • Pour the boiling water into the pot until all the vegetables are covered and add the remaining ingredients.
  • Simmer until the potato’s are cooked and hey presto a healthy filling soup!
