Leek & Potato Soup

Leek & Potato Soup is a classic.  Great to warm you up on a cold day but also amazing served cold on a hot summers day.  On our French Healthy Holiday, we serve this soup as traditional vichyssoise.  

Serves 6
  • 400g Potatoes, small chopped with skins on.
  • 400g Leeks, white parts only, small chopped
  • 400g Chickpeas
  • 1 large white onion, small chopped
  • 2 sticks celery, small chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1 ltr Veg Stock
  • 500ml Milk


To make this comforting and warming Leek & Potato Soup.

Place all ingredients except the milk into a heavy bottom pan and bring to the boil and simmer until the vegetables are just cooked – about 10 minutes. Do not overcook or the soup will lose its fresh flavour.  Add the milk and cook for a further 5 minutes.  Transfer to your blender or use a hand blender and blitz until smooth.
