"I made this soup tonight. After 7-1/2 hours in my slow cooker, most of the liquid had been absorbed and my soup looked like green mashed potatoes after I stirred it. I added about 1/2 cup of water to thin it out before serving it. This soup has very pleasing flavors and it was filling. I will make this again."

"The recipe only had 2 stars but it still sounded good to me. My kids and family LOVED it. We are making it again tonight for the 3rd time in 3 weeks. The leeks add a great taste to it."
