Corned Beef & Cabbage Creamy Potato Leek Soup

Even though no one in my family is Irish, my mom always took full advantage of St. Patrick’s Day and prepared the traditional St. Paddy’s Day corned beef and cabbage meal for our family for dinner every year. As a young girl, it was one of my favorite meals and now as an adult, it’s one I like to make in our home every St. Patrick’s Day. For me it’s a meal that’s not only delicious, but also festive and a bit nostalgic, too!

I’m not sure about the grocery stores around you, but all of the places near our house didn’t have anything smaller than a two pound corned beef brisket for sale around St. Patrick’s Day this year. Since Ryan and I wouldn’t be eating a pound (plus!) of corned beef each on St. Patrick’s Day, I knew we’d have leftovers which was absolutely fine by me since I love corned beef so much. If you still have some corned beef leftover in your fridge, I have a recipe coming your way today that I think you will love. It’s warm and filling and serves as a great way to repurpose any leftover corned beef you may have on hand.

An added bonus? It’s easy to make and overflowing with lots of nutritious vegetables, including cabbage, corned beef’s BFF.


I’m teaming up with Imagine® Foods to share this recipe with you today and their deliciously comforting organic creamy potato leek soup serves as the base for the hearty dish.

Imagine Foods Potato Leek Soup

Imagine Foods’ creamy potato leek soup is organic, gluten-free, dairy-free, non-GMO and contains no artificial ingredients or preservatives. Though quite tasty on its own, the soup serves as a great recipe base and I had a great time doctoring it up a bit in the kitchen last night when I was preparing dinner.

I just added some chopped veggies – carrots, onions, mushrooms and cabbage – to the mix and threw in leftover corned beef and pepper and a filling and hearty soup came together in no time at all! We loved this soup way more than I could have anticipated and Ryan and I ended up polishing off every last bite in the pot last night.

Corned Beef & Cabbage Creamy Potato Leek Soup


  • 2/3 cup diced sweet onion
  • 2/3 cup chopped mushrooms
  • 2 large carrots, chopped
  • 1/2 small head cabbage, chopped

  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 32-ounce carton Imagine® Foods creamy potato leek soup
  • chopped green onion, for garnish
  • salt, to taste (we didn’t need any additional salt because our corned beef was rather salty!)


  1. Drizzle the bottom of a large pot with olive oil and sauté onion, mushrooms and carrots over medium-high heat for approximately three minutes. Add cabbage, freshly ground pepper and corned beef. Cook for an additional two minutes.
  2. Reduce to medium heat and add potato leek soup.
  3. Simmer on the stovetop for approximate 45 to 60 minutes, stirring regularly, allowing the flavors time to develop.
  4. Garnish with green onion and enjoy!

    What a great recipe for leftovers. We actually threw away a half a head of cabbage. The Husband and I aren’t exactly leek lovers but I’m sure I can substitute with another one of their creamy soups. I’ve saved your post so I can be sure to refer to it next year.
    Thanks for sharing!

    I seriously miss being in a big city where there are lots of different grocery stores! Walmart and Aldi are within 5 min of my apartment. I’m hoping to move in June and wherever I go, I’ll be closer to a bigger name grocery store with more variety!
