Reviews for Potato-Leek Soup

This is our new favorite soup! I've made it several times and it's always a hit. I've made it using vegetable broth instead of chicken broth for friends who are vegetarian. Also I usually add about 1 cup of half and half along with the milk. Otherwise it's great just the way it is!
This soup turned out delicious! Very simple to prepare and tasted wonderful! I took my time making it, as I was preparing other dishes as well. A definate addition to my recipe collection!
This made a nice pot of soup. I used 2 cups chicken stock in place of the water. Very tasty!
Ditto what cad222 wrote! This went over well with us all...even my husband who is not normally a fan of soup. He says "this one has some substance!" We will be making it again for sure. (I omitted the carrots and garnished with a little shredded cheese & crumbled bacon.)
Made this tonight with fresh potatoes, leeks, and carrots from my garden. It turned out great. Good fall comfort food!
