When I make homemade chicken broth I always add 1 teaspoon of turmeric, thats is why the color of this soup is more orange. Feel free to add 1/2-1 teaspoon of ground turmeric for that extra benefit of turmeric, color and flavor.

    Great recipe! I did add zucchini cause I needed to use it up.Also added half and half at the end.

  2. I made this, this morning. So yummy! Although, I added fresh lemon juice and cholula to my individual bowl. I also thought about the cream to add. I’m gonna try it in an individual bowl. I also added a ton more mushrooms!

  3. 5 stars
    Love this recipe. I love mushrooms. So added 12oz instead of 8, and once I released the lid I added 1/2 cup half and half and 1/2 tsp paprika. Served with homemade rosemary and thyme focaccia bread. Definitely on the menu list for the winter months.

    Delicious! I followed other reviewers and added 1/3 cup of half & half, 1/2 tsp of garlic, and 1 tsp of turmeric to add depth of flavor and color. This will be a staple this fall and I can’t wait to share it with friends!

  5. Where are the 37 comments available to view?

    Made this last night for dinner. It was so flavorful and filling. My family went back for seconds. I will definitely make this again.

    Simple, very satisfying. I added some fresh rosemary and minced garlic during the sautee, they went well with this dish. After releasing pressure I added some chopped swiss chard greens from my garden for color (cooked just till they wilted) and a 1/2 of cream to make the soup a little richer. Thank you very much for providing this recipe, it’s a perfect cool / cold weather comfort soup!

  8. I received leeks in my CSA bag this week and had no idea what to make. I found this recipe and I had everything in my fridge. I’m vegan so I used no-chicken broth. Boy, was this quick, easy and SO delish!

  9. 5 stars
    Awesome recipe! Was terrific made in a good ole Dutch oven. I had bacon chopped for a leek and potato soup so used that and a drizzle of olive oil instead of the butter. It is a new fave, thanks!

    Hi, 😀
    Just loved this soup!
    Fast and easy.
    Added a bit of paprika to it 💖
    Shared this with my elderly mother who is a soup connaisseur… and she loved it ❤️
    Thank you

  11. Delicious! I just made this and am enjoying it now. The flavors come together so nicely! Thank you!

    Just made this soup. This was amazingly delicious ! I read prior comments regarding the color of the soup so I sprinkled in turmeric, I also added some leftover chopped kale I had in the frig. Most definitely a “keeper” recipe. Thank you so much !!!

    • Hi Sandy! Thank you so much for your wonderful recipe review! I always add turmeric when making homemade chicken broth, I should add it to the recipe notes. Adding kale to this soup sounds like a perfect idea. Going to try it next time!

  13. 5 stars
    Easy to make and super tasty! My boyfriend and I agree we’re adding it into our homemade soup rotation-especially this fall and winter. First time trying leeks too. 😊 I only wish I knew the nutrition value.

    • Hi Tiffany! I am so happy you and your boyfriend enjoyed this soup and adding it to your rotation, I will try my best to add the nutrition value for you! Thank you for your awesome review!

  14. 5 stars
    Amazing!!! I’ve made the soup twice already and can’t get enough of it. It’s easy to make and the flavors are rich with a light French flair. Thank you for posting this recipe. I’m now a follower!

    I don’t have an Instant Pot so I just made it on top,of the stove,very good!

    Simply delicious. Lots of time to cook now a days. Thanks for sharing. Stay healthy.

    Made this and it was very good! Thank you. I do have a question though. I was wondering, how did you obtain the orange color for your soup? I used 2 carrots but didn’t think that would color the broth, & it didn’t.

    • Hi Sylvia! Thank you so much for trying and rating this recipe, I am so glad you like it! The orange color in my soup is probably obtained from my homemade chicken broth, when I make chicken broth I like to use turmeric which has that natural orange color. Hope this makes sense!?

  19. I’m an instant pot newbie. Not sure if this recipe was for a 6 or 8 quart pot. My 6qt seemed to get almost too full.

    Also wondering, when you put the final ingredients into the pot and seal the lid, does the cook for 10” include the preheat time as well? Thanks so much!

    • I am using 6qt Instant pot. And yes, you set timer for 10 minutes in high pressure or by clicking the Soup/Broth Mode and it will preheat first, then once its preheated the 10 minutes will start. I hope this helps!
