Leek & Onion Soup

A heartwarming soup that must be prepared every winter in our household. It fits most menus because of its lightness, simplicity and goes well with any protein or carb dish.

You can have it light without the toast but you defiantly treat yourself to a restaurant quality dish with some good melted cheese on toast.


  • 2 tablespoon butter - زبدة
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil - زيت زيتون
  • handful sage (fresh or dried) - مريمية
  • 2 tablespoon thyme - زعتر
  • 3 garlic clove (minced) - فص ثوم
  • 4 stem leek (sliced) - كرات
  • 1 kg onions (sliced) - بصل
  • 2-3 salt and pepper - ملح و فلفل
  • 4 cup broth - مرقة
  • 4 toast - توست
  • 200 gram gruyere cheese (shredded or slices) - جبن جرويير

Step by step

  1. Melt butter & olive oil in a large casserole on medium heat. Then add the sage, the thyme and the garlic.
  2. Stir herbs and garlic for a couple of minutes and season with salt & pepper.
  3. Add sliced leeks and stir. Follow with the sliced onions. Season again with salt & pepper. Cover the pot and let it cook for 10 minutes on low heat.
  4. In the meantime, heat the broth. (You can keep it vegan by replacing the butter at the beginning with more olive oil and using veggie broth.)
  5. As the onions are cooked-through but still transparent in color, give it a final stir then add the hot broth. Let it come to a boil, and lower heat and cover again for another 10 minutes. Serve warm.
  6. As soup is almost ready, you can prepare the cheese toast. Preheat the broiler. Scoop soup into oven dishes, add the toast on top and place in the oven for 2 minutes or until cheese melts.
