This is probably the easiest hot winter soup recipe ever.. I cook it when camping in Wales!

Very bland -- I think you have to blend it, because it seems inedible without blending it.  After blending, it's only slightly better from there.  Who knows, maybe I just don't like potato leek soup.  I don't mean to come down on this specific recipe...but I made it tonight, and don't think much of it at all.  Very boring tasting....and I added more salt/pepper than I thought I should have....still weak.


Am I supposed to blend this? I made it and it was bland. It tasted like leek water. I didn't enjoy it much and I love leek and potato soup. Just not this one.


This is one of my favorite soups ever. I'm always sure to add a little extra white pepper. When I make this, I make a big batch and freeze it for whenever I have a craving for it. The fat and calories are very low. In fact, if you don't fry the leeks in oil beforehand (I never have), there's hardly any fat in here at all, just carbs from the potatoes.

I'll be sure to take a picture of this next time I make a batch to post here.



I am one who always needs some kind of veggie bouillon in my homemade soups. This recipe did not need any. It was fantastic showing how simple ingredients can create great flavor! Thanks for this quick amazing recipe.


I've made a very similar variation of this soup. I added 1/4 cup nutritional yeast. It's really yummy and very simple!
