Healthy Leek Soup

The very tasty and healthy leek soup is made up of potatoes, broth, leek, and ingredients such as salt, pepper, and other mind-blowing spices. The chopped and sauteed leeks and the diced potatoes are combined at last and stirred.

However, if you like, you can add some Bagel garlic butter croutons to your healthy leek soup and garnish it with chives.

Leek Soup Recipe

What I particularly like about the leek soup recipe is that it is not only tasty but also provides you with a lot of nutritional properties like an anti-inflammatory that is extremely beneficial. 

So, going for this type of soup is a must for everyone!

Leek Soup Healthy

If you want to make your leek soup even more healthy, then these Olive oil cilantro croutons are the ones you need, as they go well with everything; be it salads, soups, or yogurt. 

So, just turn over the broil, get french bread, virgin olive oil, dried cilantro, and olive oil cooking spray.

Plain Leek Soup Recipe

This recipe is extremely easy to make. All you need to do is slice the leeks and onions, sauth them nicely, and then proceed to create a creamy gravy/sauce.

Healthy Leek Soup no Potato

Every individual has a different taste and if you are one of those who don’t like to add potatoes in his/her soup, you have the option of skipping them as well. 

So, with this recipe, you have the option of whether to add potatoes or not. For potato lovers, it’s totally fine. One suggestion, I’d dice them rather small if adding. 

And, you’ll need to cook a little longer for the potatoes. 

So, if you want to make your leek soup even more healthy with or without potatoes, you can add bell peppers to your soup, add it with other spices and ingredients, and stir it well. You also have the option of using more cheese to your liking. 

Leek Soup no Potatoes 

A simple yet very tasty alternative to your no potato soup can be cauliflower, if you are not a potato lover, just add cauliflower to it, and see the magic, make sure that you do not add more butter, heavy cream, and not even much olive oil. 

Just take the ingredients in a low amount because you do not want to have many carbs in your soup. This can be your different vegetable soup with a mouth-watering taste.

For those who want a fabulous leek side dish for any occasion, but especially for the holidays, then try this Berbere Potato Leeks with Jalapenos

A kick of spice. And, if you’ve not tried the berbere seasoning mixture, then you’re in for a treat!

Leeks vs Green Onions

The look of leeks is somewhat similar to green onions that have overgrown but have a more delicate, milder flavor as compared to onions. 

You could garnish your leek dish with green onions.
