Chicken, White Bean and Leek Soup


This simple, satisfying soup is the perfect dinner to bridge the gap between late winter and early spring. It’s comforting enough to warm you through, but lighter than most seasonal soups making it ideal for eating when the temperature slowly begins to rise.

Serves 4-6. 

Good to Know:

  • Soup is only as good as the ingredients used to make it. Here, opt for the best quality chicken stock your budget will allow you to purchase.
  • If garnishing soup with Parmesan cheese, slice off the rind and throw it into the pot with the chicken and beans for added flavour.
  • When serving the soup to babies and toddlers, transfer some of the soup mixture to a bowl or glass measuring cup and blitz with an immersion blender until it reaches the desired consistency.
  • Soup can be made and stored covered in the refrigerator up to 2 days in advance.

You’ll Need

  • 2 leeks, white and light green parts only, washed and sliced into ¼-inch rounds
  • 6 cups chicken stock
  • 2 (15 ounce) cans cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
  • 4 cups shredded rotisserie chicken, bones and skin discarded
  • ¼ cup finely chopped Parsley

Prep and Cook

  • 1
    Heat two tablespoons of oil in a Dutch oven set over medium-high heat. Add leeks, season with salt and pepper and cook, stirring often, until soft, about 3 to 5 minutes.
  • 2
    Stir in the chicken stock, increase heat to high and bring to a boil. Add beans and chicken to the pot, lower heat to a simmer, and cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes. Stir in the parsley and check seasonings, adjusting if necessary.
  • 3
    Divide soup between bowls and top with Parmesan cheese and red pepper flakes, if desired.
