Potato Leek Soup Recipe

5 from 21 reviews

Potato Leek Soup is a super easy delectable combination of leeks, potatoes, broccoli, garlic and spices in a rich creamy broth.




  1. Melt butter in stockpot or dutch oven over medium low heat. Add leeks and cook until slightly tender: approximately 7 minutes. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute; stirring constantly.  Stir in cayenne pepper, onion powder and dried parsley. Add the chicken stock, potatoes, broccoli and cream. Turn heat to simmer and cook until potatoes and broccoli are tender; about 10-15 minutes. Salt and pepper the soup to taste.
  2. Crush the croutons in a food processor or in a Ziploc bag with a rolling pin, stir in the melted butter and crispy bacon.   Spoon the soup into bowls and top with a couple tablespoons of the bacon crumble.


Cayenne pepper is pretty mild when added to a big pot soup however if your heat tolerance is low start with 1/4 of a teaspoon.  You can add more to taste when the soup is complete.
