Leek and Potato Soup

"I got this recipe from a friend, who got it from her father. It's delicious; even my fussy two-year old loves it! It calls for chicken broth and butter, so if you want a vegan version just substitute veggie broth and margarine or oil."

    Fantastic soup! I've been searching for a cream-less potato soup, and this one is delicious. I didn't even need to make the roux at the end, because it was already thick and creamy and perfect. Only other change I will make next time is to cut the amount of leeks in half... five was a bit too overpowering for my taste. Otherwise, wonderful recipe! Thanks for sharing this one!

    This soup was fantastic! Made exactly as directed except I left out the nutmeg, I'm just not a fan. Also used Recipe #256259. I can't wait to eat the left overs for lunch :D

    Great recipe! My son has food (dairy) allergies but loves leek and potato soup. I used a veggie oil based 'butter' stick to saute the leeks. Everyone loved it! I'll be making this again- thank you!

    Excellent recipe! We made the vegan version and it was delicious. Very thick and only needed a little crusty bread to go with it. Thanks for sharing!
