You can actually chop the remaining leek that you use for the potato soup before washing. Then place the chopped pieces into a bowl of cool water. Use your hands to agitate the leeks to remove any dirt or sand. Then scoop the leeks out and transfer to a colander to drain and dry.

How to make potato leek soup

To make this soup, cook chopped leeks in a little olive oil or vegan butter. Next, add diced potatoes, chopped carrots, vegetable broth, and herbs. Bring it all to a simmer, and cook until the potatoes are done, about 20 minutes. Finally, purée the soup using an immersion stick blender or standing blender until creamy.

The potatoes will produce a creamy texture, especially when using Yukon gold. That’s also a reason why I love using them to make vegan cheese sauce! So you don’t need adding cream but feel free to add a bit of coconut milk or another non-dairy milk to make the soup richer. And if you would like your soup to be a little chunky, you can blend just half of it.

What to serve with potato leek soup

Think of this potato soup as you would enjoy a potato dish. So you can basically add anything that is delicious with potatoes like cashew cream or another herby vegan dip. You can also prepare some oven-roasted crispy chickpeasor crispy bread as a crunchy topping. However, I bet that crispy sesame tofu chunks or cauliflower nuggets would make a very delicious topping, too!

Since I love potatoes with dairy-free cheese, but soup with crusty bread, I made small vegan grilled cheese sandwiches for dipping. So it combines both into one delicious side snack! But next time I would like to serve the potato leek soup with homemade vegan naan and garlic butter or Indian stuffed flatbreads “Aloo Paratha“.

Can I freeze this soup?

You can easily freeze this soup for up to 3 months. I recommend puréeing the soup until it’s completely smooth if you want to freeze it, as any chunks of potatoes in the soup often have a grainy texture once defrosted. When ready to serve, defrost overnight in the fridge. Then heat it up the stovetop and serve with fresh thyme or parsley!
