Potato and Leek Soup Recipe

Updated on July 1, 2014

Best Leek And Potato Soup

Leek and potato soup is understandably popular.

It's a tasty soup but one of the best things about it is the cheapness of the ingredients. You can grow your own potatoes and leeks easily too.

Try a pot yourself, it's a great winter warmer and a fantastic comfort food that you can enjoy again and again.

      I'm going to try this recipe! I have leek and potato in fridge, so its on! I have a big batch of leek straps growing in my vege patch, because dad loves anything leek & egg (and leek & potato soup he buys in tins) so I hope to soon have a great supply of leeks for this recipe!

      I made this in the crock pot night before last and it was so-o-o good. I left out the rosemary, though, but chopped some green onion for the top of the soup. Thanks so much for sharing! *Squid Angel Blessed* and added to My Squid Angel Blessings 2012 in the "Food & Cooking » Soups and Stew Recipes" neighborhood. You are the 1st in this category. Whoot!

      Potato and leek soup would be perfect today - it's getting quite chilly outside!
