French Style Roasted Leek And Potato Soup

"I know French cooking gets a reputation for being difficult and intensive, but this recipe is super simple! All you really need to do is cook down your potatoes and leeks with some amazing flavors and blend them all up and stir in some cream. You’ll be left with the most smooth, rich, and creamy leek and potato soup that just absolutely warms your soul. Top it off with some bacon, chives, and cheese, and serve it up with some bread and you’ve got a home run meal."

Cooking Vessel SizeLarge Slow Cooker


  • 3 large leeks
  • 3 large potatoes
  • 1 yellow onion
  • 4 1/2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1/2 cup light cream
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 tablespoons chives
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne, optional
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • Bacon, for topping
  • Cheese, for topping
  1. The first thing you’ll want to do is prepare all your vegetables so they are ready and set them aside. Start by washing your leeks and removing the roots and dark green parts. Wash, peel, and chop the potato into 1-inch pieces. Dice your onion, mince your garlic, and gently chop your chives.

  2. Next, place a large slow cooker over medium heat and add the butter.

  3. Once the butter is melted, add in the onion, garlic, and leeks and cook for about 5 minutes or until softened.

  4. Add in the salt, pepper, potatoes, and cayenne pepper and stir together until combined.

  5. Cover the pot with a lid and let cook so the potatoes can begin to soften.

  6. Add in the vegetable broth, heat on low for 6 hours or high for 3 hours.

  7. Using an immersion blender or a standard blender, blend the cooked soup mixture until smooth. Return the mixture to the pot if you use a blender.

  8. Place the soup over low heat and slowly whisk in the cream. Cook for 3 minutes until the cream is incorporated and the soup is smooth.

  9. Top with chives, cheese, or bacon, and enjoy!
