I made this when I got two feet of snow outside and thought a nice cup of homemade soup would do. I liked the recipe and it was easy to make but too much pepper for me will make it again just pepper to taste next time.

Made this tonight and doubled the leeks, potatoes, broth and spices. For me it was WAY too peppery but my husband and neighbor absolutely loved it. Probably was not necessary to double the spices and I would have toned the pepper down quite a bit, at least by half. It was a light brown color and had a nice thick consistency.

I love this recipe. I never saved it and had to find it again. I enjoy a chunkier soup so I've added two types of potatoes, Russetts and Yukon Golds. The russetts break down nice and the golds add color and hold their shape better.

After reading the other reviews I simply reduced the pepper to about 1/4 tsp. Making the soup in the same pot that the leeks and potatoes were sauteed in makes all the diffence. Excellent on a cold night, very nice.

I guess people should add pepper to taste, we love it and pour it on everything so I guess it may be to strong for others. I even add it to my bowl of soup.

We really liked this soup! Thanks for putting such a terrific recipe out there for us. I can' t do milk, so I subbed soy milk and it was still fantastic. Also, I used red potatoes for more antioxidants.

I would definitely make this again. I had one leek and wanted to use it in a soup. I read some of the other comments so I decreased the pepper. It's fairly quick and it satisfied the soup craving for a cold day. After cleaning and chopping my one leek, I had almost the amount for a double recipe. So, that's what I cooked.I will have enough to freeze or reheat later in the week.

Fabulous soup!! This came out so deliciously yummy. I prepared it exactly as directed (but doubled it) and it is great! I added some chopped bacon and homemade croutons when I had leftovers the next day and the soup just keeps getting better. Great recipe - thank you!
