When I saw the in-season leeks on sale at my supermarket and I remembered that I still have a bag of potatoes in the fridge, I knew this is just perfect to make this simple potato and leek soup.

I love the fact that this soup does not require cream because the potatoes alone gave the soup a naturally creamy and chunky texture. I considered this as a healthy and filling western style soup. We served the soup as a meal with home made garlic bread toast.

    very very satisfying and warm! I love potato and leek soup as it has such a mild but creamy taste to it. And what a bargain as well!

  4. What a lovely velvety soup (and no cream so I’m considering it healthy!). Perfect comfort food. Thanks for sharing what looks to be something very yummy ;~)

    Hey Wiffy! Now this looks like something I can make! Leeks look nice around here lately. Your photos are so beautiful as always too…they make me want a bowl now!

      I guess it’s the leek season now. They are plentiful, cheap and fresh :up:

    Hi Wiffy. i’m still in my infancy stage for cooking, so there’s alot of things for me to know and learn. As i’m not a particular fan of garlic, would the taste of garlic be strong if i add it in?

      hmm I personally don’t find the garlic taste strong but why don’t you omit it since you don’t really like it :)

    Hi, I don’t have yellow or white onion but only shallot. Do you think I can use it to make this soup?

      Hi evelyn, I think you can try with shallot (maybe around 8-10) … you can even omit the onions all together.

      Oh how come? :O what chicken stock you used?

    I use chicken breast to boil and make it as the stock.

      I think maybe the stock is not rich enough. Usually home made chicken stock need to brew for quite long. I’m using Heinz carton chicken stock when I’m busy :)
