About this recipe: This soup will warm the cockles of your heart. It's the perfect soup for the winter. Potatoes are simmered with leeks in a creamy white soup base. Enjoy with a crusty bread roll.
This recipe was a really great start! I only put 2lbs of potatoes, added a carrot, stalk of celery, a parsnip and let it boil. When soft I mashed it all. Then I sauted the leeks in butter and added a little bit of flour. When that was soft I added it to the vegetables and broth. YUMMY!! - 09 Nov 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
The soup was delightful! I did use a Hand mixer instead of the food processor. This cut the amount of prep time. I also cut the amount of butter used for sauteeing the leeks. Use stock instead with a little bit of butter to cut some of the fat in the recipe. - 28 Mar 2000 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Recipe turned out great. I substituted Vegetable broth (I am a vegetarian)... - 04 Nov 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
