Bruce’s vegan leek and potato soup

As I’m self-isolating with my vegan daughter, I’ve been trying to cook healthy vegan meals. We had a couple of leeks in the fridge which needed to be used up, so I invented this leek and potato soup, which was pretty delicious.

Lovely soup


  • leeks
  • potatoes
  • medium onion
  • A stick of celery
  • 2 Veg stock cubes
  • Marmite
  • chilli flakes
  • Dried herbs (mine was a mix of basil, oregano, parsley, marjoram, sage and thyme according to the packet)

Peel and chop potatoes into cubes around 1cm. Chop the leeks into chunks about 1cm wide. Chop the onion finely. Fry it in a little oil. until it’s translucent. Add the potatoes and fry for a few minutes. Dissolve the stock cubes in around 2 litres of boiling water. Add the liquid to the pan. Add the leeks. Let it bubble. Chop the celery, and add to the pot. Add a tablespoon of marmite, 2-3 tablespoons of the mixed herbs and some chilli flakes. Stir it all up. Simmer for about 15 minutes. Enjoy!
