The vegetables in this pretty golden soup are pureed, so you can disguise them from picky eaters! Filled with vitamins, this is a filling meal in itself.

"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."
