Paleo Leeks Soup using Chicken Broth
These recipes use chicken broth to give the soups a deep rich flavor.
Creamy Leek Soup from Stupid Easy Paleo – Creamy, Cauliflower Base, Chicken Broth
This simple version of paleo leek soup uses only 6 ingredients to create a creamy version of the soup that contains no potatoes. Cauliflower is used to give the creaminess to the soup, along with just chicken broth, onion and optionally some ghee to give flavor. Use great ingredients, such as a homemade chicken broth to guarantee a delicious soup.
Cauliflower, Leek and Bacon Soup from the Ancestral Chef/Paleo Magazine – Creamy, Bacon, Chicken Broth
This is another simple option for paleo leek soup using cauliflower to add creaminess. Bacon is used here for flavor. This soup only contains four ingredients, so if you have leeks on hand and chicken broth, you are pretty close to having all that you need to make this soup.
Paleo Leek Soup using Bone Broth
For those looking to incorporate more bone broth into your diet for health reasons, the below soups start with bone broth as a base to create a rich leek soup.
Celeriac Leek Soup from Autoimmune Paleo – AIP, Bone Broth, Bacon, Creamy
This soup uses celeriac instead of potato as a base, giving it a creamy, similar consistency. The flavor of the leeks combine with rich bone broth and bacon – as well as a garlic/ginger combination, apple cider vinegar and parsley to round out the unique flavors incorporated into this version of paleo leek soup.
Potatoless Potato Leek Soup from the Paleo Mom – Bone Broth, Creamy
This soup uses rutabaga and cauliflower as a creamy base, along with the leeks – giving it a similar texture and flavor to traditional potato leek soup without the white potatoes. Chicken bone broth is used as the stock, giving additional healing properties to this soup, with other flavors such as celery stalks and optional garnish of crab meat rounding out the soup.
Paleo Leek and Sweet Potato Soup
If you like the idea of combining sweet potato as the thickener for your soup, the below Paleo leek soups use sweet potato as a primary ingredient.
Leek and Sweet Potato Soup from PaleoLeap – Sweet Potato, Simple, Cumin

Leek and Sweet Potato Soup from Meatified – AIP, Sweet Potato, Whole 30
This soup uses white sweet potatoes to retain both the color but also the lower sweetness of traditional potato leek soup. The recipe has relatively few ingredients, using coconut oil and milk for creaminess and flavor along with thyme, and conforms to the AIP protocol.
Paleo Creamy Leek Soup

Mushroom, Leek and Thyme Soup from Eat Drink Paleo – Creamy, Exotic Mushrooms
This creamy soup, which I mentioned in my post on Paleo Mushroom Soups as well, is also a leek soup after all. This paleo leek (and mushroom) soup uses a good helping of Thyme in both the soup broth and as a garnish (with coconut oil sauteed sliced mushrooms also as a garnish for the beautiful visual appearance), as well as other complex ingredients such as dried porcini, oyster or shitake mushrooms and leeks, paleo fish sauce, Dijon mustard and lemon zest/juice for flavor.
Paleo Potato and Leek Soup from The Merrymaker Sisters – Creamy, Bacon, Almond Milk, No Broth Required
This creamy version of paleo leek soup is based on cauliflower for creaminess and bacon and garlic for added flavor. One unique addition in this soup is unsweetened almond milk to add to the creaminess (ensure it is paleo), almost in place of broth as this soup does not require beginning with broth or stock on hand.
