There’s nothing better than a warm soup on a cold day. This leek soup with ground pork is creamy, delicious, easy and quick to make. Even my husband who is not a fan of leek loves it! I’ve used ground pork to make my soup, but you could also use ground beef or a mixture of pork and beef. If you don’t have access to leek, you could also use cabbage, spring onions or even wild garlic. Substitute ground meat with soya granules for a vegetarian version. The soup tastes great served with a slice of homemade bread or just like that.

How to make leek soup without potatoes

Begin by cleaning leek. I’ve leaned how to clean leeks from my mum in law and her cleaning method has never failed me. Cut off the roots and about 1 cm (1/2 inches) from the green tops. Then cut the leek in the middle, such that in the end you have a part with dark green leaves and white to light green leek part, as show on the photo below.

Remove the outer layer of white to light green leek part and slice thinly into rings. Rinse the leek greens very well under running water, leaf by leaf and chop.

Peel onion and garlic and chop finely.

To make the soup, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large pot over medium high heat. Add chopped onion and garlic and fry for about 2 minutes. Then add ground meat and cook it for about 2 to 3 minutes or until the meat has browned.

Add chopped leek, mix very well and let cook for about 5 minutes, stirring regularly.

Stir in water

Bring to a boil, cover and let cook for 10 minutes.

After 10 minutes stir in cream cheese and heavy cream.

Season with salt, pepper and nutmeg.

Let cook for about 3 to 5 minutes and DONE!
