    papergoddess's Note:

    This soup has a very light and delicate flavor. I make this when our asparagas patch is producing in the spring.

      Papergoddess; I am a soup lover and especially vegetable soups. Now, this soup has a good variety of veggies, the taste was extra ordinary and we just loved it. My DW will not eat soups that have any meat or fish. So, she thoroughly enjoyed this one. The only thing that I added was some white pepper. I used 3 medium size leeks as I was not sure what you meant by a bunch. Everything else remained as noted. This will be a soup at least once a month. We have soup every day with our dinner. Thank you for sharing this soup recipe with us. "Uncle Bill"
