Kosher Private Chef - Chestnut & Leek Soup Recipe

Updated: Jun 11, 2023

As a kosher private chef it's fun to also share recipes. I feel that food should not be a secret and that "open source" makes for better food. The more we share our recipes, others will also, and then our food becomes better.

Here is a recipe for a Chestnut & Leek Soup!

Leek and Chestnut soup is a surprising comfort! Depending on season recipe is unique.Jerusalem Artichoke gives the soup extra earthiness and creamy texture during fall and winter.

Spring and summer adding potatoes and just a tiny bit of carrot add richness. It can be a rustic treat for your family or turn it into a chef's special by with shaved truffles or crispy leek.


For six servings, approximately 2 liters of soup.

  • 400 grams shelled and ready to eat roasted chestnuts. Sold in vacuum bags of 100 grams

  • Two large leeks, cleaned and chopped

  • 2 shallots or 1 yellow onion diced

  • In spring and summer 1 large potato and a small carrot chopped During fall and winter 5/6 Jerusalem artichoke bulbs

  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger

  • 4 garlic cloves

  • 1 liter vegetable broth or water

  • Olive oil, salt and pepper


1. Saute shallots/onions, leek, potato and carrots or Jerusalem artichoke until slightly reduced, approx 8 minutes.

2. Add the garlic and ginger and saute for 1 minute.

3. Add the chestnuts, broth or water, salt & pepper and bring to a boil. Simmer for 1.5 hours or 30 minutes in a pressure cooker.

4. With a stick blender or food processor puree your soup

2. Serve garnished with chives, fried leeks, or for a special treat - truffles or truffle oil.
