I really like this recipe and it's just great the way it is. Sometimes though I like my soup a little lighter so here's a variation: Use only one potato for texture, leave out the leek altogether, increase the amount of stock and add a pinch each of nutmeg and cinnamon (yes, I said cinnamon) I'll bet you'll like that too!
