Love it, how long can it be kept in the fridge?
Linda, we’re glad you like the soup! It should keep up to 5 days in the refrigerator. The potatoes will absorb water as it chills, so you’ll need to thin it out with more stock or water.
This is so simple to make and the directions were very detailed. We enjoyed this very much. We didn’t have tabasco sauce so I added a little Hungarian paprika paste for just a touch of heat.
Can I freeze this soup??
Here’s what Emma, our editor, says. “I think this recipe would freeze quite well. If it seems a little lumpy or curdled when you reheat it, just whiz it with the blender again.” Enjoy!
Could someone let me know what measure is 3 cups of stock as my soup very nice but very thick and gluepy
3 cups is 853 mL. Just as as much stock as needed to thin it out. I’m sure you know how potato soup thickens as it sits.
Years ago, back in the early 1980s, we were coming down from the mountains on a cold, wintry day in Tucson Arizona. There was a little shack on the side of the road serving potato leek soup. I remember thinking how good it was and how I always wanted to try making it. Finally got around to it. (Talk about procrastination.) This reminded me of that soup I had all those years ago! I omitted the marjoram and thyme and added a small celery stalk just because celery always makes soups taste better. I’ll be definately be making this again!
Thanks! This is useful.
Needs a kick. Definitely add Tabasco and or V8 juice for added flavor.
I made this today for lunch and it was soooo good. I added 3 cloves of garlic. I only had one leek so I had to add half a small onion and a small bunch of green onions to make up for it. Otherwise followed the recipe. I will definitely make this again. Thank you!
I’ve been making this for a year or two. Always a little differently. Sometimes with garlic, other times with onion when short of leeks. Always a good base. When using dried ground thyme reduce by at least half.
Yummy! This was my first time cooking with leeks. The instructions for cleaning, cutting, and cooking were excellent. I added garlic after the leeks were softened. I also threw in some canadian bacon with the potatoes. Once finished, instead of using tabasco, I tossed in some chopped fresh jalapenos.
added fresh garlic right before the leeks were finished cooking. Didn’t even add the tabasco. this was so good!
It was very good but I had 3 smaller leeks and it could have used 1 more.
Also would have liked nutritional info.
Yes was awesome thank you and so easy. I love my vegan recipes and this one rocked the menu.
Please though, are u able to include nutritional information? Most sites provide them with all their recipes.
Glad you liked this recipe. We don’t currently calculate nutritional information on our recipes. I’d recommend using an online nutritional calculator like this one.
This turned out great. I was looking for a recipe without milk so I could freeze some. I’m also sheltered in place. I wanted to use what I had before ordering more groceries. Added my last stick of celery and a carrot. Many reviews suggested garlic (love garlic). I sautéed a few minced cloves in butter. I only had three small potatoes. I substituted with a cup of frozen corn. Even though I made some changes, I thank you for a wonderful recipe.
Followed the recipe except I added a little roasted cauliflower and served with a spicy oven baked chicken breast. Turned out beautifully! Yum! Thank you for sharing!
Absolutely delicious! I followed the recipe as is and added extra Tabasco. Love the little kick it gives. Though I live in Florida and it’s not winter, it is good comfort food during this lockdown!
Wonderful Bernie, I’m so glad you liked the soup!
Delicious! Added garlic and swapped chilli sauce for smoked paprika – a triumph of a lunch!
loved this recipe. I have made a few other potato leek recipes and was disappointed. my husband is lactose intolerant so I love that this doesn’t have milk or cream.
I made the soup today (sheltered in place) with leeks, parsley and thyme harvested from my garden. The soup was great. I coupled it with hot water cornbread.
My family loved it. I didn’t have Tabasco sauce so I used paprika paste, which gave it some heat. However, the heat intensified after refrigeration and reheating the next day.
