Hmm. I'm not sure how to rate this. I think I may have messed up by adding the whole leek sliced up green part and all. I did know to wash off the sand but the green part made the soup a moldy unappetizing green color. I wanted to add the blue food coloring but discovered mine was dried up. The soup was thick and creamy. I used my immersion blender to puree it in the pot. I liked it with a lot of pepper. Made for Zaar Tag.
