The external temperatures are increasingly daunting. Venturing outdoors risks a bitter cold shock, prompting an immediate desire to return to indoor warmth. What could be better than a dish that warms us up while also offering immune-supporting health benefits? Yes, it sounds just like a leek cream soup.

To be completely honest, we've prepared many cream soups over the years, ranging from pumpkin, broccoli, cauliflower, and tomato to zucchini. However, we have not explored a version with leek. The spark of inspiration ignited while drafting an article discussing the remarkable benefits of leek. Realizing how beneficial this vegetable is to human health, we concluded it wasn't something to pass up. Hence, the idea of leek cream soup was conceived. The next move was, of course, to bring the concept to life.

Preparing this soup, as you might presume, is far from complicated. It merely requires a dash of patience and a good, aromatic broth prepared beforehand. Below, you'll find the leek cream soup recipe. Best of luck!

Leek Cream Soup Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1 quart of broth,
  • 1 leek,
  • 2 onions,
  • 3 potatoes,
  • Parsley,
  • Salt, pepper,
  • Oil for frying.

Instructions:

  1. Peel and chop the onions, frying them in oil until they're transparent. Add the thoroughly cleaned and halved leek. Let it fry for a few minutes on low heat.
  2. Move the sautéed vegetables into a pot, and pour the broth over them. Cook the mixture until the leek softens. At this point, you can blend the soup until it's reasonably smooth. Season with salt and pepper, and garnish with parsley.
  3. Pair your freshly prepared leek cream soup with a slice of fresh, crispy bread. Bon appétit!
