leek & potato soup (slow cooker)

Am I the only person who wants to make a leek & potato soup which doesn’t involve loads of cheese or cream? I’m going to replace the cream with milk – hope it works!


  • 4 – 5 potatoes
  • 2 leeks
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 2 stalks celery, diced
  • 600ml low salt veg stock
  • 60 g butter
  • 250ml milk
  • chopped chives


  1. Peel potatoes and dice into small pieces.
  2. Remove most of the dark part of leek and chop remaining part, wash.
  3. Place all vegetables in the slow cooker.
  4. Add butter and stock.
  5. I cooked on High for 4hrs, but you could cook on low for 10-12 hours.
  6. Approximately 20 minutes before serving, puree (if required) & then stir in milk and chives.
This was very nice, glad I didn’t put cream in it!
