Yum : Potato & Leek Soup


I made this soup for lunch on Sunday and it was delicious – so here is a classic autumn soup for you to devour:

Potato & Leek Soup

  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 50g butter
  • 1 leek – trimmed and thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic – thinly sliced
  • 500g desiree potatoes, peeled, roughly chopped
  • 1 spring onion, thinly sliced on the diagonal
  • Sour cream and toasted crusty bread (optional) to serve


  • Heat oil and butter in a large, heavy-based saucepan over high heat. Add leek and garlic, and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes or until leek is softened.
  • Add potatoes and cook, stirring occasionally, for a further 5 minutes
  • Add 1L water to pan and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low–medium and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 25 minutes or until potatoes are tender
  • Using a stick blender, blend leek and potato mixture in saucepan until smooth. Season with salt and pepper
  • Ladle soup into bowls and sprinkle over spring onions. Top with a swirl of sour cream and serve with toasted crusty bread, if using.
