“A creamy soup with a strong leek flavor. Goes wonderfully with sourdough bread. Tastes even better heated up the next day.”

I submitted this recipe several years ago, but I still make this all the time. I no longer use so much butter, I half it, and I use half and half instead of heavy cream. This is also great as a clam chowder, with a can of drained baby clams added to it. Still great the next day, great blended, and goes perfect with a good sourdough bread. Quick and easy, still perfect for my house!

Fantastic recipe. I made the following changes: Used 5 cups of skin-on Red Potatoes, added 3 cloves of mashed garlic to the leeks, about 2 tsp of Cayenne and 1 tsp of onion powder. Also I substituted half and half for the heavy cream. After simmering, I used a hand blender to smooth it out. Very warm, flavorful and satisfying. Next time I'll reduce the butter to 3/4 cup and not salt the soup until the end. Between the butter and broth, it's plenty salty already.

This recipe was very helpful. I had to make some adjustments to the recipe as we are vegetarians, so veg stock instead of chicken and lots more leek and added garlic – just play around with it! For a healthier option, use pam to brown the leeks & garlic, and sub cream with fresh milk. Add herbs and spices you love to make it your dish, it’s super tasty!
