    Chef Joey Z.'s Note:

    I made this for my lunch today. I had purchased leeks and potatoes just for this soup. I love it either hot or cold, it tastes great both ways. You can taste the layers of flavours in this soup which makes it so good.

      Easy to make, and very yummy and creamy eventhough it doesn't have cream in it. I didn't have to add much salt at all. Also didn't have lime on hand. Not sure what to do with the lemons, do I squeeze it in the soup?

      This was so delicious and light. My leeks and potatoes turned out to be larger maybe, as I had to add an extra cup of broth to the recipe, totalling 9 cups of broth and making 10 servings. My measurements were 12 ounces of leeks (chopped) and 24 ounces of potatoes. I also did not use the oil, only a bit of cooking spray for the onions. This is a wonderful and healthy soup, thank you!
