  • Peel and chop the onion and trim and shred the leek.
  • Peel and cut the potatoes into smaller pieces, and roughly chop the parsley.
  • Fry onion and leek in butter in a large pan until soft. Add potatoes, stock, water, and nutmeg.
  • Bring to a boil and simmer under a lid for about 20 minutes until the potatoes are soft. Add parsley and blend the soup until smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
White cheese toast
  • Preheat the oven to 200°C (conventional oven).
  • Peel and finely grate garlic and mix with olive oil.
  • Cut pitta bread into triangles and place in an ovenproof dish. Roast in the upper part of the oven for about 2 minutes until golden brown. Remove from the oven and turn the bread over.
  • Brush with garlic oil and crumble with white cheese.
  • Place in the upper part of the oven for about 3 minutes until the cheese is hot and the bread is toasted.
  • Arrange the soup on deep plates or in bowls.
  • Make a swirl with double cream and serve with white cheese toast on the side.

If you have leftover bread taking up space in your kitchen, you can quickly turn that into white cheese toasts. The recipe allows for different types of bread, so do not think twice if you have day-old bread to use.


We recommend using a hand blender or transferring the soup into a blender in batches to get the best consistency. Make sure to blend in short intervals to avoid over-blending.

Enjoy a creamy potato and parsley soup

Try our creamy potato and parsley soup for cold winter nights or days when you want to add warmth and comfort to your life. Each spoonful offers a burst of rich flavours, from tender potatoes to butter-sautéed onion and leek. By frying them in butter, the onion and leek are allowed to caramelise, giving the soup a sweet, sugary base, while the tender potatoes provide a creamy texture. Take a moment, breathe in, and enjoy the wonderful aromas emanating from the soup.

Infused with nutmeg and fresh herbs

As a warm and aromatic spice, nutmeg adds depth and complexity to the soup while infusing it with subtle warmth and slightly sweet, earthy notes. Parsley provides a dose of freshness that helps create a nuanced flavour profile. The two ingredients work well together to balance the earthy heartiness of potatoes, leek, and broth. The result is a flavourful soup with a creamy texture and an inviting aroma.

Serve with white cheese toasts

While the soup is delectable in and of itself, it will also benefit from a rich, crunchy side. Crispy pitta bread, cut into triangles and brushed with garlic-infused olive oil, take the soup to new heights. The bread is topped with creamy white cheese to create a flavour sensation that cuts through the hearty soup. Each bite of the crispy toast with melting cheese will pair perfectly with a spoonful of the soup. Velvety-smooth soup and crunchy white cheese toast is a match made in heaven.

Add your own touch to the recipe

By adding your own touch to the recipe, you ensure that you get all the flavours and ingredients you crave. Consider adding more vegetables to the potato and parsley soup. For example, carrots, celery, and pepper will add to the depth of flavour when sautéed. Also, switching between chicken and vegetable broth can slightly change the flavour.

You can also experiment with spices to lead the soup in your preferred direction. Paprika and chilli powder will add heat and warmth, perfect for days when you need a flavour hug, while cumin and coriander add depth and complexity. Do some soul-searching and find the ingredients and spices that make your taste buds happy.

As for the bread, try alternatives like crusty French bread or whole-grain baguette. You cannot go wrong with quality bread and cheese – even if it is a day old. These flavourful cheese toasts are the perfect solution to stale bread.
