MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 5, 2012

I have been making this recipe for many years. Everyone I serve it to loves it. When I first started making it I did not puree it as I was to lazy to get food processor out-it was in a very difficult place to reach in my old kitchen. We all loved it. Then I bought an immersion blender and pureed it. It was a completely diferent soup!! It is great both ways, chunky or smooth!

I would saute leeks in chicken broth instead of reduced-fat margarine.
