This is quite good, and had a great creamy texture. Used 4 small leeks, only 1 fennel bulb, 3 cups veg. stock and 2 cups water.

This recipe was delicious and had a very creamy texture. I used half the amount of fennel though because I felt that otherwise the taste of fennel would be too overpowering.
