Leek Soup, Italian Style

<a href="" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Source</a>

This is a simple, delicious, easy soup recipe.


  • 800 grams (28 ounces) of leeks, finely sliced
  • a dash of olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon of white flour
  • 400 milliliters (0.1056 US liquid gal, about 2 cups) of hot broth (usually chicken)
  • 2-3 slices of toasted bread
  • a fistful of pine nuts
  • grated Parmesan cheese

Other ingredients used may be sea salt, black pepper, and various spices.

The quantities of this recipe are for 4-5 persons

Difficulty: easy

Preparation time: about 30 mins


– First of all, I slice the white part of leeks and put them in a pan with oil. They should get golden slowly without frying. When necessary, I add some water little by little.

– When the leeks are softer, I add the white flour and mix until it is absorbed.

– I pour the hot broth (usually chicken) into and leave to simmer until the leeks are completely mashed.

– I place some slices of toasted bread on a bake-and-serve dish, sprinkle the pine nuts over, pour the leek mash and the broth onto.

– I dust the lot with grated Parmesan cheese, bake for about 8 minutes and serve.

I sometimes froze this soup.
