This creamy leek and potato soup is comforting, filling and nutritious. It is perfect eaten warm on cold winter days, and it is also delicious eaten cold during the hot summer.
There is a funny story in my family about the creamy leek and potato soup. It happened a few years ago while my husband and I were still dating. He came to dinner one day and my mom prepared this soup as an appetizer. She asked him if he would like to eat a little bit of “leek soup” (that’s how we use to call it for short). He replied that he doesn’t like leeks, so he didn’t even try it.
The next time he came over to dinner, my mom made the exact same soup (what can I tell you, my family LOVES it). Only this time, when she asked if he wants some, she told him it was a “creamy soup”. This time he was thrilled about it and replied that he “looooooves” creamy soups. He cleaned out his plate and asked for seconds.
Later, we told him that was the exact same soup as before, and that it’s called creamy leek and potato soup. He was in shock (haha!) and couldn’t believe. Then he admitted that he actually never tried leeks before and that he likes it now.

Don’t know what to make, and don’t have much time? You can make a creamy leek and potato soup in about half an hour. And it can serve four to six people. Also, if you want silkier texture you can add a little bit more potatoes. And you can make it as thick or thin as you want.
To make the creamy leek and potato soup you don’t need any fancy ingredients. It is a five-ingredient recipe, that calls for leeks, potatoes, bay leaf, salt, and pepper. Although, it might be considered as a six-ingredient recipe if you count water.
To blend the soup, I like using my immersion blender. It allows me to keep this recipe in “one pan” category, which means fewer dishes (YAY!). It also helps with the control of the texture, so you can easily keep the soup chunky or blend it as smooth as you want.
When you are ready to serve, just top the soup with some homemade croutons and a drizzle of olive oil. You will enjoy with every spoonful you take.
So do yourself a favor and try out this recipe (if you haven’t already). It’s a soup-feast for the whole family!
