Hearty, warming and absolutely delicious soup! Excellent for the colder days. Make this vegan by using vegetable stock and oil instead of the butter.


Serves: 4 

  • 50g butter
  • 1 clove garlic, diced
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 3 large leeks, diced
  • 3 medium potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 900ml chicken stock
  • small handful chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 bay leaf
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 vegetable stock cube

Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:40min  ›  Ready in:55min 

  1. Melt the butter in a large saucepan on medium heat and sauté garlic and onions for a few minutes stirring frequently.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and bring to the boil. Simmer for 30 minutes. Remove the bay leaf and purée soup with a hand blender. Serve with buttered bread.


Since you are puréeing the soup, you can roughly chop the leeks, onions and potatoes - don't waste your time getting them to be uniform in size!
