Leek Soup

Leek Soup is so tasty, but my husband is actually really hard to cook for because he is so picky. He loves flavor but texture really gets to him. So here is my version of a tasty leek soup that is sure to be a family favorite!

2 cups of chopped Leeks
2 Medium Potatoes, medium diced
2 cups of Milk
1 cup of Carrots
1/2 cup Celery
1 1/2 cup Chicken Breast, Cubed
1 cup Chicken Broth
1/4 cup heavy cream

Sweat the leeks and celery in a saute pan over medium heat. In a crock-pot, add all the ingredients. except the cream. Stir, place on high and cook for 4 hours. if cooking on the stove, heat milk and chicken broth over medium add potatoes and carrots. Cook for 10 min. Add Celery and Leeks and Chicken. Continue cooking till potatoes are tender. Reduce heat to simmer, remove chicken and most of potatoes and carrots. Using an immersion blender,  blend soup till creaming. Add the cream and chicken, carrots and potatoes back in. Season with salt and pepper.

  1. This looks delicious... I have some leeks I bought for a garbanzo bean soup, but I may have to try this instead.... we shall see.
