Potato Leek Soup Recipe. A soothing comforting soup. It's not too heavy and not too light. It's just right. Especially on a chilly day.


butter 2 Tbsps
onion 1 diced
leek 2 washed and white part chopped
garlic clove 2 diced
all-purpose flour 1 Tbsp
potato 3 peeled and chopped
chicken broth 8 cups
bay leaf 2
nutmeg 1/4 tsp
heavy cream 2 cups
salt 1 tsp to taste
black pepper 1/2 tsp to taste


  1. In a large stock pot melt the butter over medium heat.
  2. Add the onion and leeks. Saute until the onions are translucent. Add the garlic and cook for an additional minute.
  3. Add the flour and mix thoroughly to make a roux.
  4. Add the chicken broth, potatoes, bay leaves, and nutmeg. Bring to a boil and lower to a simmer. Cook for 45 minutes.
  5. Remove the bay leaves and using a blender puree the soup in batches.
  6. Return to the stock pot and add the cream. Return to a simmer for about 5 minutes.
  7. Add salt and pepper to taste and serve.
