Mushroom Soup With Leeks

I absolutely love making mushroom soup with leeks. It’s a comforting and hearty dish that’s perfect for a cozy night in or for entertaining guests. The earthy flavor of the mushrooms combined with the subtle sweetness of the leeks creates a rich and satisfying soup that’s a delight to the senses. Plus, the process of cooking it is almost as therapeutic as enjoying the final result.


To make a delicious mushroom soup with leeks, you’ll need the following ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 leeks, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 lb mushrooms, sliced
  • 4 cups vegetable or chicken broth
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh parsley for garnish


First, I heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Then, I add the leeks and garlic, and sauté them until they’re soft and fragrant. Next, I toss in the mushrooms and cook until they release their juices and become tender.

Once the mushrooms are ready, I pour in the broth and let the soup simmer for about 20 minutes. This allows all the flavors to meld together beautifully. After that, I stir in the heavy cream and season the soup with salt and pepper to taste.


When the soup is ready, I ladle it into bowls and garnish with a sprinkle of fresh parsley. I find that serving it with a slice of crusty bread or a simple green salad complements the richness of the soup perfectly.


Mushroom soup with leeks has become a staple in my cooking repertoire. Its warmth and depth of flavor make it a standout dish, and it’s always a hit with my family and friends. Whether it’s a chilly evening or a special gathering, this soup never fails to impress. Give it a try and savor the heartwarming goodness of this delightful recipe!
