When winter starts showing its sharp cold teeth, or after a lavish holiday feast, soups and stews are meals that are more than welcome in my home. So I’d like to share with you this wonderful Leek Potato Stew. It’s one of my families favorite.

It’s a quite classic recipe, but yet somehow unique. This stew is light, creamy and made with all wholesome, healthy ingredients. Furthermore, this Leek Potato Stew is great flu-fighting buddy and will wash out all that accumulated holiday toxins right up from your body. A true natural medicine.

This Leek Potato Stew is made with fresh seasonal vegetables – leeks, celeriac (celery root), carrots, and potatoes, that are full of healthy fibers, vitamins, and minerals. To make this Leek Potato Stew even healthier, I added super spice – TURMERIC, which is one of the most powerful natural remedies in the world.

Turmeric has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and is a very strong antioxidant and immune booster. Turmeric is also great for cleansing and aiding our digestion – it reduces bloating, cleanses the liver and gallbladder, stimulates our metabolism. I really love turmeric and I use it daily.

If you can stand “the heat”, a spicy food, then you can also add a bit of cayenne pepper to the stew. Cayenne pepper also has anti-inflammatory effects and is excellent for our metabolism and our immunity.

Stew is a wonderfully creamy, enriched with nutritious, protein-packed Greek yogurt. Quick note. Add Greek yogurt into stew after the stew is cooked, not while is cooking. That way yogurt will not lose its nutritional value.

Also, add some extra virgin olive or flaxseed oil to boost up healthy omega-3 fats. Note that the flaxseed oil has a bitter taste so if you are not used to it, then olive oil is a better option for you.

Leek Potato Stew is quick and easy to make and thus perfect for those busy weekdays, when you and your family craves for warm and comforting meal with the spoon. Stew can stand in the refrigerator up to 2-3 days and can be easily frozen, so don’t worry if you got leftovers. Just put leftover stew in the fridge. This stew can be eaten chilled, so it’s perfect in hot summer day too.

Ingredients

  • 2-3 medium leeks dark green stems removed, washed thoroughly and sliced thinly
  • 2-3 medium potatoes peeled and chopped into small cubes
  • 1 large or 2 small carrots peeled and chopped into small cubes
  • ½ medium celeriac celery root, peeled and chopped into small cubes
  • 4 cups vegetable stock *
  • 3 dry bay leaves
  • 2 teaspoons turmeric powder
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • Himalayan salt to taste
  • Cayenne pepper to taste (optional)

Extra

  • 1 tablespoon Greek yogurt ** per person
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil or flaxseed oil per person

Instructions

  1. In a large soup pot bring vegetable stock to boil. Lower to a simmer. Add chopped vegetables and bay leaf. Cook for 20-25 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender.
  2. Stir in turmeric and apple cider vinegar. Add salt to taste. Mix stew well and leave to cook for another few minutes.

  3. Serve the stew with Greek yogurt and extra virgin olive or flaxseed oil. Add cayenne pepper to taste if desired.

Recipe Notes

* For the gluten-free version, use gluten-free vegetable broth.
** For a vegan version, instead of Greek yogurt use coconut milk/cream.
Leftovers will keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 2-3 days and also can be frozen.
For a kid-friendly version, skip cayenne pepper.

  1. This sounds like it would be perfect for these chilly nights!

  2. This stew just looks so comforting and delicious, Natalie! I could go for a bowl right now! Happy New Year! xo

  3. This is such a gorgeous soup – the weather is going to turn this weekend, so I’ll keep this recipe ready for the impending cold.

  4. I use turmeric in my curries and basically everything. Love the addition of it in this stew. Also started using leek only lately, love the combo when it combines with potato. Great idea of using Greek yogrut instead of cream. On the whole healthy stew I will give it a try.

  5. Your description really makes me want to try this. I’ve never had celeriac before. And I really like leeks, but I hate cleaning them. All in all, the turmeric, yogurt an oil drizzle really make this recipe stand out. Thanks for your notes, too.

  6. Mmm this looks so hearty and comforting. Celery root is such an underutilized vegetable, but I just love it!! Definitely need to add some to my next soup recipe 🙂

  7. Love the leek – potato combination! Looks so delicious! Will be trying it soon!

  8. Oh YUM! This leek potato stew looks like just what the winter ordered… to help keep us sane and warm! Haha. I love that you created a recipe that’s so full of protein and packed full of the good stuff! This will definitely help offset all of the crazy holiday eating we’ve all been doing. Btw, I LOVE these photos! Is that a new board??? Can’t wait to see more shoots featuring this! It’s a good thing you got the ol’ hubster to enjoy leeks–if anyone can do it, Natalie can! 😉 Have a great weekend my friend! xo

    • Haha … Thanks friend! Yes, that’s a new board… Nothing can escape your vigilant eye 😉 :* I’m working on boosting up my photography a little. Still much to learn. This soup can be vegan too, just swap greek yoghurt with some coconut creamer, so I hope you’ll give this soup a try. Xoxo

  9. Happy New Year, Natalie!! This soup is such a great way to start 2017! I’ve been feeling run down, so this is exactly what the doctor ordered (or should have ordered. lol). Love the flavors and that it’s creamy, yet light at the same time! Looks just delicious girl! Can’t wait to give it a try! Cheers!

  10. This looks delicious. I can’t believe it’s so easy – it looks so fancy, like something you’d get at a restaurant.

  11. Natalie, this potato leek stew sounds absolutely perfect for the cold winter days we’ve been having. Love the fact that you added turmeric and greek yogurt to this stew. Adding this one to my collection of stews. Thanks for sharing a great recipe 🙂

  12. I flipping ADORE leeks but I don’t eat nearly enough of them anymore – I need to change this. Steamed leeks with salmon is the bomb!
