We love the flavor of purple potatoes. They are so rich and earthy.

Purple Potato and Leek Soup

Serving Size: 4


  • 1 & 1/2 lb. purple potatoes, peeled and sliced
  • 1 leek, white parts only
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon vegan margarine
  • 3/4 cup dry white wine
  • 4-6 cups vegetable bouillon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1 tablespoon rubbed sage
  • 1 cup soy cream
  • garnished with soy yogurt, chives and a few tomato pieces


  1. Wash and prepare the potatoes.
  2. Slice the leek and mince the garlic,
  3. Melt the vegan margarine and olive oil in a soup pot.
  4. Add the leeks and gently sauté.
  5. Add the vegetable bouillon and sliced potatoes.
  6. Add the garlic and bring the soup to a boil, then turn down to a simmer.
  7. Cook the soup until the potatoes are soft.
  8. Puree the cooked soup. It will be very thick, so thin with the white wine.
  9. Add the salt, white pepper and rubbed sage and again puree.
  10. At this point, if you want, you can add soy cream. We were very happy with the soup so only used soy yogurt as a garnish.
  11. Serve the soup garnished with soy yogurt, chives and possibly with tomato pieces.

    I enjoy the color of purple potatoes, but never thought to use them in a soup. What a stunning looking photo.

    I love the idea of sage and potatoes — that’s a winning combination. The purple potatoes make this soup really pretty.

    I love the texture and the color of this soup. Hot soup is needed during this cold weather season. Perhaps I should cook something like this today.
