Rich and brothy, this chorizo and leek soup loaded with fresh vegetables will warm you up!


  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 leeks, only the greens washed and chopped
  • 1/2
    Portuguese chorizo, chopped
  • 2 medium size carrots, chopped
  • 200 grams pumpkin, peeled, and chopped
  • 200 grams sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 200 grams potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 8 cups water
  • 1 tbsp white wine
  • salt to taste
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 200 ml butter bean, drained and rinsed
  • 350 grams spring beans, trimmed
  • 2 leeks, only the whites washes and finely sliced.
  • Step 1 Prepare all the ingredients first.
  • Step 2 Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add the leek (only the greens), chorizo, carrots, pumpkin and potatoes and sauté for 2-3 minutes, stirring frequently, until slightly golden. Chorizo will start to release some fat, in which the vegetables will cook in.
  • Step 3 Pour in the water and white wine. Toss in a bay leaf and season with salt, to taste. Turn the heat to medium high and allow it to cook until potatoes are tender. Cover with a lid to bring to a boil.
  • Step 4 Add the butter beans and spring beans and allow them to cook on medium heat for about 8 minutes.
  • Step 5 Before blending the vegetables with a hand blender remove the bay leaf. On low speed, puree the vegetables and the chorizo until smooth.
  • Step 6 Add the leek and allow them to cook for a couple of minutes on low heat. Serve hot and enjoy!

    • Soup is great for anytime of year! In my home it completes a meal because of all the vegetables that I put in them. 🙂

  • My husband is the soup maker at home. He likes to make soups with whatever veggies he finds in the crisper drawer, like you. He calls them clean-the-fridge soups. But they are so yummy! Your soup too sounds really tasty!

    • Thank you! They are so yummy and a great way to clean out those drawers! I would suggest to add chopped chicken breast to the vegetable soup. With the meat, it goes to the next level. 🙂

    • Hello Colleen, Smoked Chorizo brings a lot of flavour to the soup, they are the ones that are hanging on a pole in the butcher shop behind the counter. Delicious 🙂
