Tips and Tricks for Making Magic Leek Soup

  • Be sure to wash the leeks very well. They tend to hold on to dirt inside all of their layers. I like to chop the leeks, then place them into a large bowl of cold water. The sandy dirt will sink to the bottom and the leeks will float.
  • You only need the white/light green parts of the leeks for this recipe. You can use the dark parts in a broccoli, cauliflower, and leek sauté.
  • An immersion blender is such a handy gadget to have, and I especially love it for easily blending up soups right in the pot!
  • You can add additional flavor to the soup by adding fresh herbs or your favorite seasonings to the pot.
  • To Store: Leek soup can be stored in the fridge for up to 4 days, or frozen for a few months! I like to freeze soups in individual serving sizes so that they’re easy to reheat for lunches.
