  • In a large pot, sauté leeks, onions, and celery in oil over medium heat for 5 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, peel potatoes and dice into 1/2” to 1” dices. Turn heat on high and add potatoes to pan along with 2 cups of the water (or vegetable stock or broth) and the seasonings.
  • Cover and bring to boil. When soup comes to a boil, reduce heat to medium and cook until potatoes are just tender, but not too soft (about 4 to 5 minutes).
  • Meanwhile, remove and discard the tough ends from the asparagus. Cut spears into 1/2” to 3/4” pieces.
  • When potatoes are tender, remove 2 cups of the soup mixture from the pan and pour it into a blender. Set aside.
  • Stir remaining cup of water or vegetable broth and asparagus pieces into soup. Cook uncovered at a low boil for 5 minutes or until asparagus is tender-crisp.
  • While soup is cooking, add milk to blender mixture and blend until smooth. (Use caution when blending hot ingredients.)
  • When asparagus is tender-crisp, stir in blender mixture. Cook until thoroughly heated.


The dark green part of a leek can be very tough; therefore, you will want to only use the white, yellow, and very light green part of the leek (minus the root).

    I used this recipe for my lunch today, but I’m going to have to rename it Cream of Artichoke and Leek Soup, since I didn’t have asparagus, but I did have artichoke hearts. I just added some chopped artichoke hearts into the soup after removing some for the blender. Oh, and I also used canned coconut milk instead of soy or almond. It was luscious. I highly recommend this soup, even for busy cooks. It was easy, and didn’t take much time to prepare. Definitely worth it.

    This soup is such a good diversion from the chunky vegetable soups I usually make. I’m definitely going to be making this often. It’s not overly difficult, it’s filling, and it’s a crowd pleaser. Thanks for the inspiration, Jennifer.
