Creamy Potato and Leek Soup

Creamy Potato and Leek Soup - Dairy-free, healthy and full of flavor. Quick & easy to make, only 30 minutes!

Creamy Potato and Leek Soup is a delicious comfort soup for those cold and chili fall days. This soup is made without any cream, and the secret to its creamy texture is the pureed potatoes. It’s naturally dairy-free and gluten-free. Today’s recipe is courtesy of my Mom. She is the Queen of comfort soups. (Hi, Mom! :)) Couple of weeks ago, she also made this Creamy Zucchini Soup. She visited us recently and one day she made this soup. It was so good to come home to  this delicious and warm soup after a long day at work. Can you believe that a soup with few basic ingredients can be so flavorful and delicious!

I also love that the ingredients are so simple and you can easily find them in your pantry. It only takes about 30 minutes to make. It is great for freezing too. You can make a large batch of this soup and freeze it for those days when you don’t have much time to cook for lunch or dinner. Just place it in the refrigerator the night before. I think this will become my go-to recipe for those days when my fridge is almost empty and I don’t have time to go grocery shopping.

I hope you give this recipe a go. As always, let me know in the comments below how you like it. Do you have a favorite comfort soup?

This creamy potato and leek soup was bursting with flavor and was so comforting.

    I love a good soup recipe to have on hand for the cold winter months. This is great that this is dairy free!! I’d love it if you’d come share this and some other recipes over at #TryABiteTuesday over at Caleigh’s Kitchen!

    This is a simple and lovely version of leek and potato soup. I’m not dairy-free, but sometimes entertain with friends who are, and this is a great soup for us to have in wintertime. Can’t wait to try it.

    • Jenn

    Beautiful photos, the soup look so delicious. Almost Vegan isnt it? except bacon bits. My daughter is going to try vegan. I am going to show her this recipe. Thank you for sharing.

  • Heidi @ Food Doodles

    Oooh, this looks delicious. I just love that it’s dairy free since my nephew has a dairy allergy :). I’ll have to remember this soup!

  • Kathi @ Laughing Spatula

    What a beautiful soup and so easy to make! Leeks are an under used veggie in this house, time to change that! Beautiful photos!

  • Ali @ Home & Plate

    I love adding leeks to any kind of cream based soup. But you had me at bacon. Lovely pictures btw.

  • Annie @ Annie's Noms

    A tin of Potato and Leek soup is my guilty pleasure! I bet homemade is so much better though, I need to make this! Then I wouldn’t have to feel guilty as I made it myself haha!

  • Robyn @ Simply Fresh Dinners

    Oh my gosh, Neli, my mouth dropped when I saw that first photo! What a beautiful introduction to a fantastic recipe. This looks like something I could curl up under a blanket beside the fireplace and slurp on for an hour, lol.
    May I feature this recipe in my next Tuesday Tidbits? My readers would love it!

    • Delicious Meets Healthy (author)

      Robyn, thank you so much for the kind words!! You made my day! Glad you like it! 🙂 You are welcome to use it in your Tuesday Tidbids! That would be amazing!

  • Tina Marie

    I could use a bowl of this! Leeks and Potatoes – Oh Yes!

  • Linda Roisum

    Potato Leek Soup is one of mine and my husband’s favorites…will be making this soon.

  • Rachel @ Simple Seasonal

    This soup looks so cozy! Perfect for warming-up on a chilly day. Your photo make it cook so inviting, and leeks and potatoes are such a great combination!

  • Melissa @ Cilantro and Citronella

    Leeks are so underrated, I learned to love them when I lived in Wales – the land of leeks. I don´t eat bacon, any suggestions for an alternative to give it that salty, fatty element?

    • Delicious Meets Healthy (author)

      Hi Melissa, you can use shredded cheese instead, or breadcrumbs, or even avocado. It’s not the same but these are good alternatives in my opinion. Hope you enjoy it! 🙂

  • Jessica

    Oh yum! I love creamy potato soup and could definitely go for a bowl of this right now!

  • Derek

    Well you can’t beat this. This is perfect for winter. But what am I saying? Of course you know that! Great pic too 🙂
