Roasted Potato Leek Soup

March 23, 2020Teresa

Roasted Potato Leek Soup is really delicious. It only uses 8 ingredients so it’s really very simple. This recipe starts out by roasting the red potatoes, leeks and a whole garlic bulb. After that, you transfer the mixture to a Dutch oven and add chicken broth and seasonings. I used an immersion blender to smooth out the soup.

I made this soup thick by choice. I used 64-ounces of chicken broth. But if you want your soup a little thinner, add an additional pint or quart of broth. It all depends on your personal preference. You can also change out the chicken broth for vegetable broth if you’d like to keep the recipe vegan. I chose chicken broth because I didn’t want to turn the soup brown. 🙁

I had been craving a version of this soup for several months. I finally got around to making it for my son and his wife when we caught up after the holidays. I served it with a loaf of Buttermilk Wheat Bread. That combination was really hearty, satisfying and filling. Not to mention, it was the perfect comfort food meal for January when it’s cold outside.

I love leeks in anything as they add so much flavor. I’ll take them in place of onions any day. Leeks are excellent paired with roasted garlic and fresh thyme, in my opinion. This soup does not need any kind of thickener. The potatoes make the soup plenty thick enough. I think this soup is heartier and healthier by leaving on the peels from the red potatoes. You can see the flecks of potato peels in the soup. Yes, this soup has a lot of character. 🙂

Roasted Potato Leek Soup is really fantastic for week night meals. I always make more than we need. That way I can have leftovers for lunch or dinner meals later in the week. Even though I sent home half of the soup and half of the bread with my son and his wife, there was still plenty for me. All of us enjoyed this soup. I hope you will too.

Cut the tops off the leeks and wash thoroughly. You will have to rinse the end next to the stalk really well as sand usually collects there. Slice leeks down and place on a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet. Cut the top off a whole bulb of garlic and place on cookie sheet.

I added an extra quart of chicken broth here. If this soup refrigerates, you will need additional water or broth to reheat as it will thicken up a lot in the refrigerator.

This soup is thick, much like a chowder. Except it doesn’t use flour or cornstarch to thicken it. It’s naturally thick due to the starch in the potatoes.

Recipe Notes

NOTE: I used 64-oz. of chicken broth for this recipe. The soup is very thick. You may find that you want to thin it more, to your taste. Use either additional chicken broth or water.

NOTE: This soup tends to thicken as it sits out and if it’s refrigerated. You may need to add water or additional broth to thin it out to your level of comfort.
