This has been a family favorite for years. I used to make a big pot and my friends would all come over for a bowl!

I needed a recipe to use up my leeks in the fridge and thought because it was cold that I should make a nice soup. Came across this recipe and tried it. OMG I have to rate this one a five. It had a nice taste and was wonderful. Thanks for posting. I will be making this one again.
