4 leeks, finely chopped 1.2 kg
1 onions, finely chopped 200 g
3 potatoes, cut into 1 cm pieces 600 g
1 tbsp butter, unsalted 14 g
1 tbsp canola oil 15 mL

Before you start

A blender or food processor will be very useful to purée the soup.


  1. Prepare the vegetables: finely chop the leeks and onions; peel the potatoes then cut them into 1 cm pieces.
  2. Heat the butter and oil in a saucepan. Add the chopped onions and leeks, cover, and cook over low heat about 10 min until softened.
  3. Add the potatoes, broth, salt and pepper. Simmer, covered, about 25-30 min until the potatoes are softened.
  4. Purée the soup in a blender or food processor. Pour in the milk then mix well. Cover and chill thoroughly (about 2 hours). Garnish each bowl with minced chives, then serve.


This soup will keep up to 7 days in the refrigerator or up to 3 months in the freezer. It can be served cold or warm.
