Total Time:
1 hrs


  • 3 tablespoons butter

  • 1 small onion, chopped

  • 1 clove garlic, chopped

  • 3 cups chicken stock

  • 3 potatoes, peeled and diced

  • 3 large leeks, chopped

  • ½ cup chopped fresh parsley, or to taste

  • 1 bouquet garni

  • 1 cube vegetable bouillon

  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


  1. Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; cook, stirring frequently, until slightly softened, about 3 minutes. Add stock, potatoes, leeks, parsley, bouquet garni, bouillon cube, salt, and pepper; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until potatoes are tender, about 30 minutes.

  2. Remove soup from the heat; discard bouquet garni. Purée soup with an immersion blender until smooth.


Since you are puréeing the soup, you can very roughly chop the leeks, onions, and potatoes. Don't waste your time getting them to be uniform in size!

For a vegan soup, use olive oil instead of butter and vegetable stock instead of chicken stock.
