    Mine ended up being a bit less healthy than the recipe- I didn't have milk, so I cooked the leeks in butter and a bit of cream. I'm not a big mashed potato fan but I have no complaints with the recipe- it was simple, fast, and delicious!

    I tasted them and thought they were good. I'll be honest though I did add some extra butter. I love the method for using the leeks. I would like to try it with other greens.

    Great stuff. really helped me impress my date. She talked about how good they were for the rest of the evening.

    Quick to make, the leeks add a wonderful flavour, and there is sufficient milk to give this mash the creaminess we all crave for when we eat mashed potatoes. Because I want to throw cloves of garlic in wherever I can get away with it, I confess to having added 3 cloves of finely chopped garlic in with the leeks. What a bonus that one can eat this dish knowing that this dish is lower in fat than many comparable potato mash dishes! Thank you, Bergy, for a great recipe that I’ll certainly be making again!
