      LOVE THIS RECIPE! Did not have heavy cream however. I read some of the other reviews and saw that some chefs pureed, so that's what I did! I took probably 1/4 of the potato/leek combination and pureed it and added it back to the broth. No need for cream in this recipe! Also, next time, I would cut back the pepper a bit. Not for me, but my 10 year old thought it was a bit peppery, so I made some homemade croutons to float on his dish to try to get the pepper taste a bit less for him. I LOVED the taste of this recipe, however. GREAT POST LOONY!

      I don't know what I did wrong. I followed the recipe, and just don't like it. At first it was bland. We added some more salt and pepper and also cubbed up some ham (hubby's suggestion). Now it's not as bland, but there is a strange vinyl type flavor. I don't know if I just don't like leeks, if my leeks were bad, or what. It's not horrible, but just not something I want to eat. Hopefully my kids will like it, as I have a huge crockpot full of this soup.
