Vegan beet, potato, and leek soup
This vegan beet, potato, and leek soup is a creamy delicious soup with the prettiest shade of red! You’ll love how easy it is to make too!
This weekend we got a ton of snow here in Montreal.
And I mean a ton. I’m talking snowed in and can’t leave the house and sitting around bored and what am I going to do, oh I know I’ll stay in and make a cozy beet soup recipe kinda ton.
But seriously, I was actually snowed in over the weekend because of the storm, and I actually did make this recipe for vegan beet, potato, and leek soup.
I mean, what else was I going to do?
Well, I did also make a batch of my triple coconut oatmeal cookies too. (Hey, I needed some dessert, okay?)
But back to this soup recipe for a second. I had some beets in my fridge and was trying to figure out something else to do with them other than add them to my salads.
Now, I’m going to be totally honest with you….I’m not the biggest fan of beets.
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t dislike them, but they’re definitely not my favorite vegetable. I find they can often have a really overpowering earthy flavor if they’re not prepared well.
But this soup…this soup you guys!
This soup has no overpowering “beety flavor.” So if you’re not the biggest fan of beets don’t shy away from this recipe! The leeks, onion, and garlic give this soup such a rich flavor, and the potatoes make it thick and creamy.
And let’s not forget about the colour…who doesn’t want to eat such a vibrant soup!Print

Looks fantastic. Does it freeze well?
Hi Susan, yes! You can freeze this soup.
This soup is SO yummy!!! I made it for the second time today. Thank you.
So glad you love it! Thanks for sharing, Amanda!
Well this was easier than i expected- making soup using this recipe was a great way to use up some veggies (i added in a couple of carrots and parsnips too!) and produce a yummy meal! Making another variation today with chillis and broccoli in aswell (and weirdly; a bit of a cooking apple just to see what happens flavour-wise!)
Thanks for a great, simple and v tastey soup 🙂
I’m glad you enjoyed the recipe! 😊
A very yummy simple and extremely healthy soup. I skipped the oil but added a bit of miso paste. It turned out great. After some thought as to what could make it more filing (as I was planning to eat it without any bread (needed to avoid chewing for a few days :))), I added some canellinni and navy beans (blended them in). And I found that the flavor improved even more! Will definitely be repeating this one. Great job and thanks for sharing! 🙂
Thank you Milda! Glad you enjoyed the recipe.
So good, I loved it! I’ll add less cumin next time but other than that is a keeper. Thank you!!
Thank you Estera! Glad you enjoyed the recipe 🙂
I loved this recipe :). I just wanted to let you know that in the 2nd step of the instructions, I think you meant: “Add the leeks and onion**, and let cook for 3-4 minutes on medium heat.”
Thanks for all you do,
Hi Samantha, Thank you!!
