potato and leek soup

A cosy and comforting soup in under an hour.

Of the winter soup classics, potato and leek is one of the most comforting and satisfying. The mild flavours of leeks and creaminess of potatoes complement each other so well - the whole family is sure to love it! It’s a healthy and satisfying meal, ready in under an hour.  

This timeless flavour combo is intensified and made more delicious with a quality chicken stock base, but it can be easily made vegetarian or vegan by using vegetable stock and skipping the creamy garnishing extras. You won’t compromise on taste by switching ingredients to accommodate your dietary needs.

To enhance the flavour, we start by roasting the potatoes, leeks, onion, garlic and fragrant rosemary until soft and golden. Pureeing the roasted ingredients is fast in the Vibe Blender, and best of all, you don’t even have to wait until the veggies cool down. Simply transfer the hot vegetables straight from the roasting tray into the heat-proof, stainless-steal jug, add the stock, blend and serve! It’s quick and no other pots are required!  

This potato and leek soup is creamy enough without cream but adding a dollop of cream, homemade yoghurt, sour cream or a sprinkle of parmesan cheese is next level. Finish with chopped chives, croutons, or crispy bacon titbits.
