What an enjoyable, easy to prepare soup. The measurements and instructions are very accurate. A very nice version of a classic soup.

THIS is the way I like my potato leek soup - quick, simple, and with no milk or cream! Cooking the leeks in butter for a few minutes adds so much flavour to the soup, and I like having pieces of leek and potato in it as opposed to pureeing the whole thing.
