Great easy to make soup. Tried small additions such as finely chopped onion at stage one or adding a tea spoon of mild curry powder and they all still tasted great.

Absolutely delicious and super easy to make. Me and my younger sister made this as a starter for our family! I would recommend hand whisking the soup as well and otherwise it is very lumpy!

This is great as is-my gran made it with carrots and bacon added to step one and served it with *onion cake* just a germ dough (like pizza)with onions, sour cream and bacon topping (it's a German traditional meal that way).

1st time making it, wow my hubby and kids looking for more!! Thank you

20 January 2011 From: Kathleen
Absolutely lovely! I doubled this immediately--why go to all that work for one meal? But I'm vegan, so I substituted the chicken stock with chicken-flavored stock, and instead of the milk I substituted my standard cream soup replacement:
Blend at high speed 1 cup RAW cashews with 1 cup water, until thick and not grainy. (Feel between fingers)
Add another cup of water, 2 TBSP cornstarch, 2 TBSP vegan chicken powder,
2 tsp onion powder, and salt to your taste--I use 1/2 - 1 tsp.

You can add this right into your soup and let come to a simmer. Soup will thicken a bit.

You can also use this recipe as a cream sauce base for whatever your little heart pleases. Bring to a boil on the stove, and add another 1 1/2 c. more water as it thickens. (This recipe is from the 7 Secrets Cookbook by Neva and Jim Brackett--a great basic vegan cookbook.)

02 January 2011 From: Sixoclockticket
Lovely soup, nice and easy, and the recipe was simple to follow with lots of good tips. I'll up the pepper next time.

Have never made soup before and this recipe is fab. I added a few extras like mushroom, onion and smoked bacon, my whole family ate it including my son who never touches soup as a rule so well done!!!!

I made this soup for my partner and she loved it. I added some mixed dry Chillies and it gave the soup a nice mellow bite to it.

I made it with home made Duck stock and my good lady said it was the best soup she had ever tasted. She's been working in hotels for over 10 years so....!!

I thought a 1/4 of a teaspoon of pepper would be too much! NO it wasn't, this soup is delicious. I served it with garlic bread & will certainly be cooking it again.

I just finished making this leek and potato soup. I blended it at the end which topped it off, pretty good for a student eh! Thank you!!!!! I added a tad more salt as well, it was only missing a bit!

I make mine with very creamy milk and no water but still using about 3-4 chicken stock cubes and also add a little grated nutmeg as this helps to bring the flavour out. Garlic is too strong for this recipe and kills the delicate flavour of the leeks so I leave this out.

Have never made soup before, found it to be so easy using your recipe, really enjoyed the result, so much cheaper and better than the tinned soups.

It's simmering on the stove right now, and smells delicious. Because I can't leave a recipe alone, I added half a chopped onion (I'm an onion lover). Just the thing for a bleak Sunday in January!

Fantastic, easy to make and so so tasty,  I'm useless at cooking and I even forgot to add the cream but never noticed till I'd eaten my first bowl. Probably because the potatoes were so creamy after following your instructions. No salt in there either because I used stock cubes so pretty healthy too.

I added 1 red pepper and 2 spring onions. Blended. It turned out great. Really tasty.

Message: Am making this recipe for the second time this month as it was a big hit the first time around and perfect for the awful cold and wet weather we've had all month! Today I am going to fry up some lardons first, remove from pan and save to add back at the end. Then saute the leeks with butter in the same same pan to get some of that nice bacon flavour into the mix. Scrummy!

This is such a lovely soup, a classic. I never peel my potatoes for it. If you blend/mash it up at the end, you can't tell, get extra nutrients and less waste, a result!

Really enjoyed this leek and potato soup, tasty and cheap. I blended it as I prefer a smooth soup and it froze very well. Give it a try, it won't disappoint.

Just soo delicious! Today is the first time in attempting to make potato n leek soup.! Followed the instructions which were soo easy and I used fresh cream instead of milk. My 3 and a half year old loved it and she's fussy normally and my 16 and a half month old son had an adult portion. Waiting on my husband to come home from work and my mum to give their verdict! First time i have come across your site and i think it's really user friendly and my next attempt is to make a ginger bread man with my daughter...she's been nagging for a long time. Thanks for your recipe and this wonderful site.

Just finished my leek n tatty soup...quite impressed as
this is the first time I've had a go at it. I did however use 5 leeks from the allotment and just had to add extra ingredients along the way, 5 big spuds and a little extra garlic n pepper. I did think though the end result was a little lumpy, so I put the whole lot through a blender and
whizzed the lot up (I do the same with my courgette soup). This made for a much better looking and tasting soup and the soup still had a little crunch from all the small bits of leek in. So just gunna freeze it up
ready for Christmas. Then ill reheat and either add a dash of cream or try a little grated hard cheese over the top....... That's all folks........

Pat, if you had read the description properly, they do say that  although it does look like celery, it isn't.  It's not confusing for anyone apart from you providing they read it properly :)  I have used this recipe for a while now, and even my kids love it, who are very picky eaters :)  Thank you for a great recipe :)

Just looked a your recipe for leek and potato soup. Recipe reads OK but the vegetable being chopped and pictured looks more like celery than leeks. Just commenting, it might confuse some people as to thinking there is celery in the soup which would not make a good leek and potato soup. Sincerely PAT

Just found this recipe today.  I had all ingredients in the house except leeks.  I used a whole bundle of green onions instead.  Very Good.  Family loved it, and I will make it a lot this winter.

Am I ever glad to have found your site today!  My hubby and I have just enjoyed the soup made per your instructions with minor modifications. On the other side of the Pond here, it's a major national holiday - Thanksgiving Day.  It's about the feast whose  participants were English pilgrims and their aboriginal friends.  Since we are not feeling well, and are possibly contagious, we could not join others as planned today. There's no traditional turkey in our house, but I happened to have leeks and large potatoes.  The soup was perfect for the rainy day we are experiencing.  The modifications were that I chopped the leeks in a processor and shredded the potatoes in that machine (I have an injured right wrist.) We love garlic and red pepper, so I threw a little in, as well as some sliced portabella mushrooms that needed to be used soon.
Since I prepared a huge pot, I added the evaporated milk to our individual bowls, thinking that I would surely freeze the rest, but now I realize that it will not be necessary to find room in the freezer! We will not
forget what we ate on this Thanksgving Day! TYVM!
