In the middle of a cold Austin winter I don’t have lots in my garden , but I do have lots of leeks. So  here is my vegan version of this soup which is typicaly served cold, but I prefer hot.

  • 1 cup of cut leeks, 2 inch sections, white parts only
  • 1 large onion diced
  • 3 cups of chopped red potatoes with skins
  • 1 Tablespoon olive  oil
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 4 cups vegetable broth or water


  1. Saute leeks and onions in oil on medium for 8-10 minutes. Don’t brown
  2. Add potatoes and stir
  3. Add vegetable water or broth, bring to a boil and cook for 10 minutes or until potatotes are soft.
  4. Puree solids in food processor.
  5. Add puree to leftover water in pot and add salt and pepper.
  6. Serve with chopped chives on top.

Like all soup this is better the next day.
