Every time I make this, it is a huge hit! I'm constantly getting requests for it. Sometimes I use a little bit more of the green sections of the leeks and it makes the whole soup turn green, which all my friends and family seem to get a kick out of. I always use way more garlic, I never use the celery or scallions (I always forget to buy them), mushrooms go well in this soup, and most times I forget its on the stove and it tastes better for the longer simmering. :D Thanks for sharing!!

delicious!! i've eaten leeks before, but never cooked with them myself -- i don't remember them being this good! i made a couple of minor changes: 1. i forgot to buy celery and was too lazy to go back to the store, so no celery. 2. i only used just over 4 cups of vegetable stock. maybe my potatoes were on the small side, but i felt like if i added more stock it would have been too runny. 3. i only pureed half of the soup. just a personal preference, i guess. it will be served tonight with some irish soda bread for st. paddy's. (not bad for a scottish girl!)

A friend of ours said it was the first Leek and Potato Soup that didn't taste too much like onion! Even the two kids at the table enjoyed it! I will definitely make it again!

WONDERFUL! Made this for St. Patrick's Day this year and it was a big hit. We just love leek & potato soup and this version was especially comforting and delicious. So easy to make too. Served as suggested with some homemade garlic croutons, scallions, and parsley to garnish as well as some fresh hot bread on this side. Yum - it tasted like it had cooked all day! This made a big pot, so now I already have lunch ready for tomorrow too :). And I definitely won't wait until St. Paddy's Day to make it again! Great recipe - thanks!

We love this soup! I've made it twice now and we eat every drop and want more. I will be making it regularly. The first time I had some mushrooms which needed to be used up so I threw them in and they were very good. Next time I may add some cabbage. I highly recommend this recipe. It's super easy to make and can be varied with whatever broth or vegetables you have on hand.

FABULOUS!!!! And, using a vegan margarine, it IS vegan!! You'd never know the difference. It was a huge hit at our St. Patty's Day work potluck, and none of my coworkers knew the difference!
