This soup is absolutely delicious. You need to try ! I blended only half of it and left it half chunky and it was amazing. My wife who doesn’t like creamy soups loved it.

Omg this was amazing! I added the miso at the very end so it wouldn’t kill off all of the good bacteria and added fresh rosemary for garnish. SO yummy. Thanks for the recipe! I’m not longer afraid to cook with leeks. 😁

I made a double batch of this soup after I got my wisdom teeth out. Not only was it easy and delicious, it was heart and filling! It sucks not being able to eat solid food but this got my through and helped keep my spirits high. Would definitely make again.

Thank you so much, Emma! I love this soup so much!


Made this today for my boyfriend and I during a windy lockdown day. All I can say is omg so yummy. Best Potato & Leek soup we’ve ever had hands down. We had some crispy fried onions in the pantry so used those as a topper (naughty but so nice).

I’ve followed you for a while on Instagram but downloaded and subscribed to your app yesterday. Excited to make more delicious food ❤️❤️❤️

Maria Koutsogiannis

YES!!!! This is amazing, makes me so happy!!!

Finding a fellow Greek who is open to vegan recipes is just awesome. This recipe was DELICIOUS. 100% will make again.

Maria Koutsogiannis

This makes me so happy, thanks for the love sweet cheeks!


Made this last night and it was indeed quick, easy and delicious. Satisfied the whole family and even took care of lunch for my kid today 👌
I modified it just a bit by adding the miso paste in last once the soup was off the stovetop to preserve all its beneficial attributes.

Maria Koutsogiannis

YES! Oh my gosh the addition of Miso would be so good in this, thanks so much for the love hun!

This soup is amazing! I’ve tried several potato leek soups since going plant based a few years ago & nothing has come close. I didn’t have homemade broth so I used better than bouillon & somehow that, the nutritional yeast & miso ends up tasting exactly like chicken broth, it’s wild! Thanks for the amazing recipes & all of the inspiration you share Maria!!!

Maria Koutsogiannis

YOU’RE SO WELCOME!! That combo is so damn good, right?! Thanks so much for the love hun!
