I enjoyed this soup and appreciated that it was healthy. Not your typical cream leek potato soup, but it was nice and thick after blending. The flavor was very good. I may omit the carrot next time, just to keep it more potato/leek oriented. Thanks for posting. Made for ZWT8 Family Picks
The very first thing I did was cut the recipe way down to just two servings. I omitted
the yellow onions and made up the difference with extra leeks. Jaime's recipes are easy
to make and always a winner. I am also a fan of Yukons and went so far as to use unpeeled (potato peeling not my favorite cooking activity). Garnished with cracked black pepper and fresh parsley for a quick weeknight meal. I should note: the soup was prepped stove top then transferred to the slow cooker on LOW for about 3-4 hours.

I was torn between a 4 & a 5 rating on this soup - ended up choosing 5 because, although very simple, that's the beauty of it. There is nothing competing with the onion/leek flavour - it's thick and creamy, a stick to your ribs type of soup (if you puree of course). Made it last night to enjoy today - and enjoying it I am.
