From Scratch Potato Leek Soup Recipe

This From Scratch Potato Leek Soup is delicious and tummy-warming on a cold night. Gather around the table and enjoy!

Potato leek soup is among one of the top 10 most comforting soups in my book. Potatoes and leeks just go together!

Now that we are more settled in the new house, I’m starting to turn my sights toward my homesteading dreams. I have a great backyard for this, and I think it would be fun to grow potatoes and leeks. Of course, there are many other veggies I want to plant too, but potatoes seem to be a “no-fail” sort of crop for those with moderately green thumbs like me. So I’m looking forward to trying it! The leeks, I’m not sure about. But I’ll do my research as always. 🙂

So with any luck, I’ll be able to make this potato leek soup recipe with ingredients I’ve grown myself in the new year! It’s something I’m really looking forward to.

  1. It almost looks like really silky mashed potatoes. I started gardening a couple of years ago and love it, it’s quite empowering when you can use your own veggies in your meals. Thanks for the great recipe!
