Home » Recipes for Wellness » Leek, potato & asparagus soup: a modern twist on an old classic

This incredibly simple recipe produces one of the tastiest vegetarian soups ever to have passed my lips. Take your classic leek and potato, and add the distinctive, beautifully complimentary flavours of fresh asparagus for a hearty and nourishing crowd-pleaser.



  • 1¬†tablespoon olive oil, ghee¬†or butter (or half and half)
  • 2 medium to large potatoes
  • 2 leeks
  • 2 bunches fresh asparagus
  • 1 litre vegetable stock (good quality)
  • Salt and pepper to season


  1. Prepare the vegetables by chopping the potatoes into small 2cm cubes, slicing the leeks, and roughly chopping the asparagus.
  2. Heat the oil/butter in a heavy based pot or saucepan on low to medium heat.
  3. Add the leeks, stir, and cook gently for a few minutes until soft but not browned.
  4. Add the potato and asparagus, and stir to combine and coat with the oils.Leek, potato and asparagus soup ingredients
