Creamy Potato And Leek Soup Reviews

  • Absolutely delicious. I made two minor substitutions: instead of onion powder I used a 1/2 of a large white onion, tripled the fresh garlic instead of the powder one and didnt use the corn starch. Thank you it was awesome

  • I changed nothing and loved this recipe Well I added chives in the end but thats it My picky kids loved it

  • This was quite delicious. I didnt use the corn starch and found that the consistency was thick enough anyway. It really is simple, easy and tasty. Thank you for the recipe.

  • Good soup My wife absolutely loved it. Shes a potato lover so instead of pureeing the soup with a hand blender I cut the potatoes into rustic bite sized chunks. Added to the texture of the soup and gave it heartier look.

  • I used fresh chopped onion and 3 large cloves of garlic instead of the powder in the recipe. 1/2 teaspoon of salt and one teaspoon of finely ground pepper. Delicious.

  • I did not care for this recipe.

  • I made this soup, and omitted the half n half, to save on calories. I used 2 leeks, 6 yukon gold potatoes (unpeeled). I did not add the cornstarch either. Once the potatoes were cooked, I used a hand immersion blender to make it smooth. Yum.

  • So great I dont eat dairy, so I switched the butter to a plant oil base one, and the half and half to coconut cream. Made it super creamy I might add more leek next time...

  • Delicious is all I can say Super easy to make as well

  • Made this precisely as recipe calls for. Excellent flavor and texture.

  • This soup was awesome easy to make and even though i didnt have garlic powder, realized after i started cooking I doubled up on the minced garlic. I also added some mushrooms and only immulsified half of the potato and leek mixture. Really tasty soup

  • This is very similar to my favorite Clam Chowder Recipe. Next time I will follow my Clam Chowder base, omit the clams, and just use more potatoes. This was good, but my Clam Chowder is much more flavorful.

  • I did not make any changes to this recipe, it was very good but was not my favourite (just my opinion, my family loved it).

  • Excellent

  • It wasnt really what I was looking for and my husband didnt like it

  • Easy and delicious. Making it again. My husband and I loved it

  • Ive been using Allrecipes for quite a while but this is my first review This recipe is simple, straightforward and optimizes the main flavours of the ingredients. Using salted butter and broth I chose not to add too much extra salt, instead I added slightly more pepper and dried parsley. After the soup was fully cooked I removed it from the heat and blended, adding 1/2 cup of heavy cream and blending a bit more. The consistency of the soup came out thick and creamy while preserving the flavours of the leak and potato. For presentation purposes I added a sprinkle of Parmesan and fresh parsley. Delicious

  • The family loved it. I didnt change anything.

  • This soup came out very well. There is a rich potato taste and a hint of the leek. I varied the recipe by using 3 lbs of potatoes to 1 1/2 lb leek. 32 oz broth, 16 oz cream, spices as in the recipe. I also made my own broth, I buy leg qtrs when on sale, usually .29 per lb. Then boil up 3 of them with carrots and celery, I get broth and chicken meat as a result. The meat I use for salads, mexican dishes etc.

  • Very good soupI made only a few insignificant changes. I used 2 T. of minced garlic added to leeks, etc,. then added minimal powdered garlic later. My picky daughter even liked it. I will make this again

  • This soup came out great I usually dont use either onion powder or garlic powder, preferring the real thing, but used them since I was short on time and the final outcome was delicious My lunch guest agreed. The only thing I changed was that I used vegetable broth since I dont eat meat. Will definitely make this again.

  • I didnt use cream and I think that affected the flavor. I didnt taste the leeks enough and it needed more garlic flavor.

  • Used the cream

  • Really nice recipe. Also omitted the cornstarch. I pured half the soup and added 1/2 cup of 35% cream. Delicious

  • Ive made this recipe several times after a family member sent it to me. Fantastic soup. Love how easy this recipe is to follow Thanks :)

  • Very easy to make. I doubled the leeks and used heavy cream. This is a delightful winter soup to be enjoyed with a side of crusty bread. I will be sending some to the nurses working with my wife as a quick break in their busy day. :

  • I made it as is and it was sooo goood. real keeper.

  • Amazing and easy A wonderful Fall and Winter soup for those cold days when you need some home cooking comfort food. Very easy to make. I have been getting a lot of leeks in my CSA this Fall and having been making batches of this like crazy. This is actually my 3rd time making this recipe in 2 weeks. The recipe is perfect as is. I often add extra garlic to satisfy my love of garlic. A keeper for sure

  • Came out great, I made the same substitution as another reviewer. Doubled the garlic and added 1/2 a diced onion. I also omitted the cornstarch.

  • My daughter loved this I made a few substitutions... 2/3 cup of cream (18%) and 6 cups of chicken broth. I left of the cornstarch because it was thick enough. Finally. I added 3 tablespoons of crumbled bacon instead of salt.

  • I used some of the advice from others, used real onion, more garlic and I used some of the dark green part of the leeks too. I also add a bit of Onion Plus seasoning. Great flavor and makes a lot. Will keep this recipe

  • Easy to make. Excellent texture and taste.

  • Made this soup recipe with a few small changes, really nice and suitable for a fussy eater

  • Did add carrots We loved it

  • Yum I used bok choy instead of leeks, it was great

  • I have been looking for a great potato leek soup recipe. This one is awesome You have to try this. I did not use the cornstarch also. It had a perfect consistency. Thank you for submitting this one.

  • We all love it.

  • I have made it several times. Mostly because my kids and husband ask for it all the time. I dont make any changes. Yummy comfort food.

  • This soup is delish as-is, but it does come out on the thicker side. You could probably get away with omitting the corn starch. Im going to make it a second time, but Im adding half a yellow onion and will probably omit the corn starch.I may also add the half-and-half during the last 5 minutes of simmering before blending the soup.

  • Followed it to the letter great soup have made it before using real onions in place of powder both versions turned out excellent

  • Simply delicious I used an onion chopped fine, and a stalk of celery diced, and added to the leeks and sauteed in the butter. I used 1 & 1/2 cartons of Chicken broth to cook the potatoes. When they were soft, I gently mashed then with a hand masher, leaving some chunks. I then added 2 cups of half & half and a bit of vegeta seasoning (about 1 tbsp) and 1 cup of cheddar cheese. Before serving, I sprinkled with diced crispy bacon. My family said it was the best soup ever
