Fantastic recipe. Made this last night with leeks just dug out of the garden….so delicious! I ate the whole thing myself for 5 days and never tired of it. I would definitely make again. Useful quick recipe for rank amateur cook. Jenn, thanks again. I’m making it tonight again so perfect for cold Canadian winter days! Added bacon bits for that added kick and topped with homemade crunchy croutons. I like to incorporate a few meatless meals each week, but you can easily use normal Parmesan cheese if that’s what you have on-hand. We will make this one again. Thank you for this, it’s a great soup. The author does a great job with seasoning, which I think can be difficult for a home cook, and it really makes a difference. Thank you for sharing your passion with us. Great recipe. She wanted us to learn to be self sufficient as adults and not dependent on junk food. Also when it came time to serve, I had some grated Romano cheese on the table that people could sprinkle on the soup if they wished. I looved this soup, so light and creamy. Hi Chloe, Creme fraiche is thicker, but it should work here. I added some crispy bacon bits on top and served it with Jenn’s Roasted Beet salad (with some warmed up rotisserie chicken pieces in it) and french bread. Thank you so much for sharing your recipes. Hope you enjoy the soup! Another great recipe. And so easy. Do you need to increase the cooking time at all when doubling the recipe? I didn’t even have heavy cream, just half & half and it turned out fabulous- very easy and fast and was perfect to warm us up from the cold, rainy day. Very nice. This is definitely a go-to recipe. Don’t know why really, very simple ingredients, not difficult, but perfection! My entire family loved it so much. If it's too thick, add water or stock to thin it out. Thank you! Topped it with shredded spinach and curls of parmesan cheese. Really simple to make and the family enjoyed it. I used half of everything because I’m single and modified it by stretching a cup of chicken stock with water, a smoked turkey neck, and a few veggies I had lying around. Top on the soup. This is by far the best potato & leek soup I’ve found and the only modification if that I omit the thyme (not a fan) but otherwise it’s now my go to “potato” soup! Wonderful on a hot summer day and not as heavy as it would have been with the cream. Five stars! It’s best to freeze the soup without the cream, but if you already have the cream in it, it may separate a little when you reheat it. I don’t have chicken or vegetable stock. Getting ready to make more as the weather is getting colder. I always double or triple it, planning on freezing some of it, but we never seem to have enough left to freeze. I made this recipe as written. I am not a certified nutritionist and the nutritional data on this site has not been evaluated or approved by a nutritionist or the Food and Drug Administration. Thank you. When there are so many recipes out there for a particular dish, I love finding one that stands out as simple and delicious. I subbed 18% cream for the heavy cream as that was all I could find. I topped it with some chives along with a little white cheddar and crumbled bacon. Add the leeks and garlic and cook, stirring regularly, until soft and wilted, about 10 minutes. This is probably the 10th time I’ve made it and it never disappoints. Made this today and loved it!!! Do some soups cook better in a Dutch oven, and some in a stock pot? I made this over the weekend and served the last bowl last night so I am making another batch today! Planning on making it again very soon for friends. The kids stayed in their pajamas and watched movies all day, my husband made a roaring fire (and filled our house with smoke, but that’s another story), and I made a big pot of potato leek soup. My picky wife loved it, which means an automatic five stars. It’s one of the first dishes I learned to make in culinary school, right after a proper omelet, because it’s an essential base soup in French cuisine. I followed the recipe exactly and it came out great. This was really, really good. I found this after looking for a recipe that didn’t call for cornstarch. Wondering how to store the remaining soup. Both were perfect, depending if you want a more leek taste or more potato, a thinner or thicker soup. We have sent you an activation link, This would be delicious with some cooked crumbled bacon on top! I love the recipe so glad I came across it while googling. Great design and very easy to use. – so, my first time making soup ever, took a while, but in the end( I am not photographer) a delicious, healthy soup. I don’t blend it at the end though, I’ve tried it both ways and I prefer it a bit chunky instead of a smooth soup! I’m new to cooking and this page. Enjoy! We did substitute shallots for the onion. Very easy to make. I made this for my husband and changed a few things to suit him, leaving out the salt and garlic and setting aside half of the filling to whisk back in, and finally substituting half and half for cream. It’s best to freeze the soup without the cream, but if you already have the cream in it, it may separate a little when you reheat it. My husband brought home 4 huge leeks so I actually only used one bec after I washed & chopped it came to 4 cups. It is so delicious and easy to make. I cooked the leeks and some onions in a small amount of drippings very briefly before I added to the pot. If it separates when you defrost it, it should come together again once reheated. I normally make no changes to Jenn’s recipes (and I change almost every recipe I make!) Loved your recipe! I’m an experienced cook and this is the bomb recipe for a French-inspired potato leek soup.

Do you think coconut cream would work in place of the heavy cream? THANKS AGAIN!!! Like any of my other cream soups you don’t have to actually use cream when you make potato and leek soup. Yes Nat, you take both out before blending. Adjust the heat as necessary so as not to brown. This was by far the best potato soup I have ever tasted!!! This will be my new go soup recipe! I cooked it down a lot but still wasn’t able to get the thickness I am used to with vichyssoise. I had added this to my soup list when you first posted this. Creamy and flavourful! Yum. The bay leaves and thyme sprig were brilliant. I left mine chunky (didn’t purée), and it was absolutely delicious. Thank you and I’m ready for your second book already. but I’d make three changes to this one: 1) No need to specify low-sodium broth IMHO; 2) Less broth (maybe 5 cups instead of 7)? I stopped blending while there were still a few potato pieces, which I enjoyed. After struggling for years when questions like this arose, I ordered a kitchen scale (read reviews). I used about 3/4 c of cream but it would have been just as good with less. I think I may have puréed it too much and next time I may leave it with a little more coarse. I have your book but it didn’t have this recipe in it. To help amp up the flavor of this soup, add a big dollop of Organic Better than Bouillon chicken base. I lay the bags flat, remove as much air as I can and then seal and place in the freezer flat. I wanted to top it with bacon so I cooked the bacon in the Dutch oven first where I will be cooking the soup then wiped off the grease and proceeded with the recipe. This is by far the best and easiest recipe available! I didn’t think of writing you I have ordered the book. End result: AMAZING! I have frozen this soup with the heavy cream in single batches.

Cook, stirring occasionally, until soft and wilted. I used veggie broth to make it vegetarian. Add the chopped potatoes, bay leaves and vegetable stock and bring to a boil. Agree with Jenn, cook, drain and crumble the bacon first before adding it. When potatoes are done, skin them while they are still hot and cut them into bite sized pieces. Good flavor and texture. I definitely recommend this recipe. I wouldn’t change the recipe in anyway! My husband made this to use up some leeks we had in the fridge…OMG so very good….it’s become our new “soup”, the kids and we LOVE it! I was putting away the leftovers but had to stop for a third bowl first. The recipe is very easy to follow and simple to make.
