Delicious and creamy Thermomix potato and leek soup. Easy to prep and loaded with potatoes, leeks, onion, and garlic. Paired with fresh bread rolls and served with crispy potato cubes it makes a fantastic midweek soup dinner.
Even better, you can freeze your potato and leek soup leftovers for another day or use the Thermomix to reheat this creamy potato soup.
Thermomix Leek & Potato Soup
First thing is first, do you call this Thermomix leek and potato soup or Thermomix potato and leek soup? Do tell all in the comments as I find it so interesting how the same recipe has two different names.
I must admit I would name it Thermomix leek and potato soup and our youngest child Jorge would just call it mummy’s yummy potato soup.
In fact, he loves my potato soup so much that he would eat it every mealtime and will always go back for 2nds and 3rds until he reaches his carb coma.
Which is funny, because its only with a handful of his favourite meals that he would go back that many times, as for a child he is not greedy.
But just like Jorge, I do love leek and potato soup because it is so creamy from the potatoes and is fantastic for when you have leftover potatoes that need using up and to avoid wasting them you can load into the Thermomix for a quick creamy soup.
Today’s Thermomix leek and potato soup takes all my favourite soup ingredients together to make one yummy soup. You have the potatoes for creaminess, leeks for hidden veggie, along with plenty of garlic and onion and veggie stock.

What Kind Of Potatoes For Leek Soup?
I only ever make Thermo potato and leek soup when I have loads of spare potatoes that need using up.
As my clear out the potatoes and avoid food waste challenge happens.
I then load usually up to 800g of potatoes into the Thermomix and make soup.
If you think of your potatoes the same way when making a leek and potato soup. Don’t think that you must use premium potatoes, as you don’t need to as any clean potatoes with bruises removed will be perfect.
Can You Make Potato Leek Soup Ahead Of Time?
Yes, you can make ahead potato and leek soup and its just as delicious. You could make this creamy soup in the Thermomix and then load it into containers and even freeze it and reheat from frozen.
You could also make the potato and leek soup earlier in the day, leave it in the Thermomix and reheat using the Thermomix when you are ready to eat dinner.
How To Thicken Leek & Potato Soup?
For a thick leek and potato soup recipe or to thicken it, simply add more potatoes.
Potatoes are the best natural thickener and I often use leftover mashed potatoes in stews and casseroles in the slow cooker to thicken them up.
Another main reason for a soup not been thick is too much stock has been added and its too watery, so keep an eye on the liquid total you have added.
Potato Leek Soup With A Twist
I love to add in fun ingredients into my soups to give them a better taste and to make the soup process easier.
My potato leek soup with a twist involves adding in some Allioli. It’s a fantastic garlic mayonnaise from Spain and gives a wonderful garlic and creamy texture to your soup.
I also add in Philadelphia cream cheese as an alternative to cream. So, if you are looking for a creamy leek and potato soup recipe without cream, then you will love the ingredients list.

My thoughts on Thermomix Leek & Potato Soup:
It’s simple – If you have not made a homemade soup before and want a simple one, then you will love leek and potato soup.
Leftovers – We often buy more potatoes than we need, and a potato soup is a great way to clear out your potatoes and start over. You can also freeze the leftovers for another day.
You can make baby puree – You can also add just stock and potatoes to the Thermomix and make baby puree for your little ones.
But most importantly, would I recommend making leek potato soup in the Thermomix? Yes, I would. I would highly recommend that every Thermomix user tries making soup as its amazing and such a time saver. Plus, you can also use the Thermomix to reheat your leftover soup too!

Leek & Potato Soup Thermomix Recipe Ingredients
Potatoes – When I am making potato soup I always go with as many will fit in the soup maker. In this case I found that 800g of potatoes took the Thermomix to just below the max line.
Leeks – You can add just 1 leek or take it up to 3 leeks depending on how much you love leeks.
Garlic & Onion – I love garlic and onion in most of my soups. They give a fantastic starting flavour and prep fast in the Thermomix.
Butter – Rather than oil to make a classic recipe for potato and leek soup I would recommend using butter instead. But we don’t eat that much better so are subbing it for Light I Can’t Believe Its Not Butter.
Seasoning – Then soup is not the same without its seasonings. I recommend salt, pepper, parsley, and thyme.
Extras – Then for potato and leek soup with a twist I am adding in Allioli (Spanish garlic mayo) and Philadelphia cream cheese.
Then for the kitchen gadgets that we have used in this Potato And Leek Soup Thermomix recipe it has just been our TM6 and its wonderful for many types of soups.
Plus, we recommend you head over to our Thermomix recipes category as we will be adding Thermomix recipes as we try new ones for you.
