Prep Time: 15 minutes | Cooking Time: 30 minutes | Total Time: 45 minutes


  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium leek, white and pale green parts only, thinly sliced, rinsed, patted dry
  • 3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup dry white wine
  • 1 pound baby potatoes, unpeeled, cut into thick wedges
  • 6 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 2 teaspoons Diamond Crystal or 1 teaspoon Morton kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup shelled fresh or frozen peas
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce or soy sauce
  • ¼ cup coarsely chopped dill, plus sprigs for serving


In a large pot, heat the extra-virgin olive oil over medium heat. Add the sliced leek and garlic cloves, and sauté until they become tender and fragrant, about 3-4 minutes.

Pour in the dry white wine and let it simmer for a couple of minutes to enhance the flavors.

Add the baby potatoes, vegetable broth, kosher salt, and a pinch of freshly ground black pepper. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium-low and let it simmer for 10-12 minutes, or until the potatoes are cooked and fork-tender.

Using a potato masher or the back of a spoon, lightly mash some of the potatoes in the pot. This will help thicken the chowder while still leaving some potato chunks for texture.

Stir in the heavy cream, shelled peas, Worcestershire sauce (or soy sauce), and chopped dill. Cook for an additional 5 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together.

Taste the chowder and adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper, if needed.

Ladle the Potato and Pea Chowder into bowls and garnish with fresh dill sprigs.

Serve hot and enjoy the comforting and creamy flavors of this delightful chowder.
