Potato Leek Soup

3 Smart Points110.3 Calories

This is the kind of soup that is so simple to make yet tastes like you really know your way around the kitchen. I grew up loving this classic soup as a kid, and eating it always brings me back to a happy place. The flavors of the leeks and the potatoes compliment each other so well. I like mine pureed, but if you like it a bit chunky you can use a potato masher instead of an immersion blender to give you bigger chunks. This is ready in under 30 minutes. (To make this gluten-free, simply eliminate the flour or use AP gluten free flour)

Potato Leek Soup

Total Time: 45 minutes

This is the kind of soup that is so simple to make yet tastes like you really know your way around the kitchen. I grew up loving this classic soup as a kid, and eating it always brings me back to a happy place. The flavors of the leeks and the potatoes compliment each other so well.

Ingredients:

  • 4 medium leeks (dark green stems removed)
  • 1/2 large white onion, chopped
  • 2 medium russet potatoes, peeled and cut into cubes
  • 1 tbsp flour (use AP gluten free flour for GF)
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 4 cups fat free chicken stock (or vegetable broth for vegetarians)
  • 1/2 cup 2% milk
  • salt and fresh pepper

Directions:

  1. Wash leeks very carefully to remove all grit. I usually cut them horizontally and separate the rings to make sure no dirt remains. Coarsely chop them when washed.
  2. In a medium soup pot, melt butter and add flour on low flame.
  3. Using a wooden spoon, mix well. This will thicken your soup and give it a wonderful flavor.
  4. Add chicken stock, leeks, onion, potatoes and bring to a boil.
  5. Cover and simmer on low for about 20-25 minutes, until potatoes are soft.
  6. Using an immersion blender, blend the soup until smooth adding the milk and adjusting salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Serve immediately.
