  • 1 large sweet potato
  • 3 medium leeks
  • butter
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • salt and pepper
  • Curry paste or 1 tsp of curry powder
  • 4 cups of stock.
  • 1 cup of coconut milk. (if not replace with milk)

Make this yummy Leek and potato soup


  • Wash sweet potato and peel it. Dice it in small cubes. If you cannot, just cut in small chunks.
  • Wash the leeks and dice them. It is my least favorite part as cleaning the leeks can be daunting: some dirt gets caught inside the leaves, so make sure to clean it well.
  • In a large pot, add the butter and onions. Let it cook until onions are tender.
  • Add the garlic, sweet potatoes and leek.
  • Add the seasoning. Let it simmer for few minutes until leeks are tender.
  • Add stock and cook for 20 minutes or until potato is soft
  • Let it cool. Puree in your favorite blender.
  • Add it back to the pot and add coconut milk.

Voilà. It is an easy healthy  soup recipe that can warm you during those cold winter nights. Looking for even more delicious soup recipes? Check out our Pinterest board!

  1. Would you believe I’ve never tried leeks? Mainly, because I’ve been afraid of how to cook them right. I will have to keep an eye out in the produce section and give this recipe a try!

  2. I haven’t tried a leek and sweet potato soup before, but we love leeks and potato soup, so we might give this recipe a try. Thanks.
