Gluten Free Potato Leek Soup Recipe

Gluten Free Potato Leek Soup

There is something so warm and comforting about a big bowl of hot and creamy potato leek soup on a fall day. If you are avoiding dairy as well as gluten, use light coconut milk and olive oil to replace the milk and butter in this recipe for gluten free potato leek soup. The results are equally comforting.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes


  • 3 large, peeled and cubed baking potatoes
  • 1 finely sliced, washed leek
  • 3 finely minced cloves garlic
  • 3 tablespoons butter OR olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons amaranth flour
  • 1 quart gluten free chicken stock
  • 1 cup milk OR half and half OR light coconut milk
  • 2-3 teaspoons dried, crushed thyme leaves
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Boil the cubed potatoes just until tender but not over-cooked. Drain and set aside.
  2. Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add amaranth flour and whisk until the mixture forms a paste. Continue to whisk until the mixture is bubbly and thick, about two minutes.
  3. Add leeks and garlic and cook for two minutes. Stir to prevent burning.
  4. Add the drained potatoes!
  5. Slowly add chicken broth and whisk to mix.
  6. Add milk and stir to blend. Add seasonings and simmer over low heat for 15-20 minutes.
  7. Serve warm.

Makes about 2 quarts

Absolutely great!!, Member LifesPrincess

This recipe really is great; it's easy to make, and is delicious as well! Here are some things I did different: 1: replaced the flour with corn starch 2: added parsley 3: let it sit over night I'm not sure how much the first two changed the outcome, but letting it sit out gave all the flavours a chance to blend a little better, and made a world of difference in taste!!
