A wonderful spring soup. It's light, flavoursome and totally moreish. Asparagus is simmered with leeks, onion, lemon juice and white rice. Serve with a crusty bread roll, if desired.
I prefer a thicker creamier soup. It was ok but not great. I added some heavy cream to help it along. I will not make this again there are easier and better recipes out there. - 22 Feb 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This recipe was quick and easy. I used chicken broth rather than plain water. My husband and I couldn't believe there was this much flavor without any milk or cream. Delicious... - 29 Mar 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I made many changes to this recipe to make it pallatable. I used 3 leeks and did not add any onions. I browned the leeks and rice in 2 Tbsp of olive oil. I then cooked this mixture for 30 mins. I also added less water to the soup and added 1 vegetable bouillon cube for each two cups of water. - 30 Dec 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
