OUTSTANDING SOUP, for sure! As Annacia did, I added a little cornstarch to thicken it up, but other than that, followed your recipe ~ Well, I did substitute lemon pepper for the S&P, but otherwise . . . ! I really liked the inclusion of the leek & shallots, & it was nice to keep it veggie with the vegetable stock! Thanks for this keeper!

Sharon, delicious just doesn't seem adequate to describe the flavor in this great soup. I will admit to adding a bit of cornstarch slurry to increase the body to suite our preference. That really didn't change the flavor and I wouldn't change anything about this recipe (except to add a little thickening, lol). Broccoli is my fav veg and this soup does it proud. This will be made again soon :D.

Outstanding soup. I used 2 T. butter, and I used chicken stock. Thanks for posting!

This is a really great soup, and I think leeks and broccoli go well together. I did find it too watery, so I threw out some of the water which I felt bad for and kept the puree. I used as much water as I wanted to to get the consistency I wanted. I didn't think of using cornstarch as the other reviews have suggested, but i might do that the next time I make this soup.

This is delicious soup. I also added a little cornstarch but that was the only difference. We loved it. Full of flavor. Thanks for sharing!
