Steps to Make Cozy Creamy Potato Leek Carrot Soup
Honestly, it’s a simple recipe and can be easily followed. But still, I have divided the steps for you to understand everything quickly.
To start preparing this amazing potato leek carrot soup, you need two large size potatoes. Peel them, wash them, and dice them in a shape that can be quickly cooked. Make sure the pieces are not too big because then, the cooking time will be increased, and the flavors will be compromised.
After potatoes, you can then take four carrots, peel them, wash them, and cut them in a proper shape. Lastly, take three leeks, wash them to remove all the dirt. Then dice them.
The second step mainly includes cooking. So, take a large pot and keep it on medium flame. Once the pot is hot, add olive oil to it. Then add diced potatoes, carrots, and leeks— cook the vegetables for a couple of minutes.
After five minutes, add spices to the vegetables. Start by seasoning with salt, turmeric powder, chili powder, dried oregano, pepper to taste, and dried garlic powder.
Once again, mix the vegetables and cook them till everything is combined well.
Moving further, you can add more flavors to the soup by pouring the vegetable broth into it. Let the vegetables get nice and juicy in the broth. After the veggies are cooked, turn off the flame and let the pot sit on the side for around one hour.
After the veggies have cooled down, blend it until it gets smooth. Then you can serve it with any of the dishes that you like. Or you can enjoy this soup without anything else.
Key Notes for Potato Leek Carrot Soup:
- If you don’t want the soup to get a sandy taste, wash the leek properly. Clean it under running water so that its inner parts are free from dirt. Then dice the leeks for the soup.
- Instead of cooking the vegetables in a pot, place them on an oven tray. Remember to preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Before putting the tray in the oven, season veggies with spices and roast for around half an hour. If the potatoes are hard, keep them in the oven for a few more minutes.
- To make your soup look and taste fancy, add fried sage or any other herb of your choice.
- Also, if you want, add a dash of heavy cream to prepare the soup extra creamy.
What to Serve with Potato Leek Carrot Soup?
