It’s like soy sauce and it’s by the soy sauce

First time using nutritional yeast. I used powder instead of flakes and my soup turned out quite bitter. Was that the reason?

Jill Dalton March 20, 2020 - 10:38 am

That could be the reason. Not all nutritional yeasts are created equal. The powder would definitely be stronger.

Megan June 14, 2022 - 12:21 pm

I’m curious, do you have a brand of nutritional yeast that you prefer?

My favorite is from Sari Foods and second is Noochylicious

Oh, Jill, why is ‘comments’ turned off on YouTube? I ask only because I wanted to post there and express how incredibly wonderful this soup is! I have my own recipe for leek and potato soup which I am quite proud of, but this has taken it to another level! I couldn’t wait till dinner to try it so I’ve had a bowl for lunch and will certainly be having it again for dinner! I halved the recipe and used my Instant Pot, cooking it for 8 minutes after having sautéd briefly the leeks and potatoes. You are a continued inspiration to me. Keep up the good work. Love from the UK.

That is fantastic Deborah! I am so glad you like it and have found a way to cook it that is even easier. =)

I’m looking forward to trying this. We are currently self isolating and I don’t have any leaks but I’m hoping a few brown onions will also do the trick.

Help. I’ve gathered the ingredients and am cleaning potatoes right now. The recipe calls for 2 cups broth, but the video seems to be using 4 c. Which is correct?

Jill Dalton March 29, 2020 - 3:22 pm

It is 4 cups or one liter. Thanks for letting me know.

Karen September 12, 2020 - 2:43 pm

Recipe above says 2L. I thought that meant two liters???? Which is the right amount?

Jill Dalton September 12, 2020 - 5:51 pm

Yes, that is 2 liters.

I made this soup recipe this evening and it was truly delicious! Didn’t change a thing. Hubby said it was a keeper and he’s not a vegan! Thanks for a yummy recipe.

Julie Hathaway September 21, 2020 - 10:48 am

Wow! I currently transitioning to a WFPB lifestyle. Tried this with my meat-loving family last night and got rave reviews. Thank you!

Side note:. We also think this could double as a sauce or gravy with the right meal.

This soup is wonderful! I used 4 cups of broth instead of the 8 cups and it is rich and creamy. Thanks Jill for another delicious recipe.

Megan January 22, 2022 - 11:37 pm

Made this tonight and it tastes AMAZING! May use a little bit less than the 2L broth to make just a tad thicker next time, but enjoyed the flavor regardless.

Megan January 25, 2022 - 1:12 pm

This is my new favorite soup!! I followed the recipe verbatim and it has soooo much flavor. I have lots for leftovers and it seems to taste better every time I whip it out. May do just a tad less broth next time to see if I like it a little thicker. So thankful for Jill’s recipes, they always stand out compared to other meals I try. Gotta go – can’t let my soup get cold! 🙂

I really like this soup a lot! However, the recipe says 2L of broth. Which I assumed was 2 liters. I thought that was too much liquid but used it anyway. Before I blended I took 4 cups out. And it was perfect!! So I’m guessing it is a typo. Thanks for the recipe. A new favorite to add to my soup collection of recipes!

The chilly weather coming in made me crave potato soup, which I haven’t had in years. This soup hit the spot. I made half the portion. I never had leeks before, and what a nice intro in this soup. Delicious!
