Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cups chopped leeks (about 4 leeks), trimmed
  • 4 cups chopped carrots (about 1 lb.)
  • 1 medium white onion (about 1 cup)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt , or to taste
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 4 cups water (or more broth)
  • 2 teaspoons cumin , optional

Instructions

  1. In a large stovepot, heat oil over medium heat for 1 minute.
  2. Add chopped leeks, carrots and onion and salt. Stirring continuously, cook until carrots are slightly tender, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add broth and water, and mix.
  4. Let simmer over medium-low heat for 10-15 minutes. Remove from heat.
  5. Using an immersion blender, blend together to reach desired consistency. Add more water or broth if desired.
  6. Stir in cumin if using, and serve hot.

Recipe Notes

*The soup is pretty flavorful on its own, but I also added cumin to spice it up a bit. Other spices that go well with leeks are tarragon, thyme, and sage. To make it SPICY, add red pepper flakes!
