Comes out beautifully

This is such a delicious addictive soup - perfect for fall! I went generous on the leeks (using 2 entire units) and used quartered baby potatoes (skins on), and only partially pureed the soup (leaving it mostly chunky). It turned out so well!

This is a very good soup. I added 2 sliced carrots & then cut them in 1/2 & I added 1 more stalk of celery as I had them in the house. I doubled the recipe as I always bring my friend some. I added in 4 pieces of fried bacon crumbled. I had some green onions so I chopped those up too. It's been very cold here in Chicagoland so soup is a must. I put out shredded cheddar cheese to put on top of the soup. Excellent!
