Easy, Delicious, and healthy Potato Leek Soup Recipe

Potato Leek Soup


A warming and hearty soup



3 tablespoons butter, ghee, or extra virgin olive oil

3 leeks,white and light green part only, cleaned well and sliced thinly

4 medium potatoes, peeled and cut into small chunks.

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon white pepper

46 cups light chicken broth or vegetable broth


In a large stock pot, melt the butter.  Add the leeks, potatoes, salt, and pepper and sautee about five minutes.  Add 4 cups broth and bring to a boil.  Reduce to a simmer and cook until the vegetables are tender, about 20 minutes.  Using an immersion blender, or by carefully transferring the soup to a blender, blend the soup until smooth.  Add more broth if you prefer your soup to be a bit thinner (pictured is with 4 cups). Enjoy!
