Made some changes...Used 3 - 4 large red potatoes either 2 qts of vegetable broth or 1 qt water & 1 qt veg. broth use evaporated milk and lots of fresh cracked pepper...We like it a little chunky so didn't blend smooth and addded some fresh grated parmesean cheese right before serving along with the chives...Can also add some fresh mushrooms for added flavor Read More

LOVED IT! But I added more potatoes and instead of the heavy cream I used sour cream. REALLY good. My husband's having me add it to my list of things-he-loves-me-to-make. Read More

if you want to make the soup to a thicker consitentcy you can add a little bit of slurry wich is cornstarch and water or you can use a little bit of roux which is butter cooked into flour. Read More

I used chicken broth and 2% milk but added another potato to make it thicker. I also added a garlic clove. It was really good and easy to make! Read More

We loved this recipe. I substituted low-fat half-and-half for the cream and it didn't make any difference. Read More

What a wonderful recipe! It's easy to make and great to eat! My husband and I made this together and it couldn't have been better! Definitely restaurant quality! The only changes we made were these...We added one more red potato (just to give it a little bit more potato flavor) And we only used 1 leek. (Using only the green and a little bit of the white but not much) This is definitely going to be recipe used regularly around our household! Thank you so much Corwynn! Read More

We love this soup. It was very easy to make. The next time I make this I might halve the amount of cream as we thought it was a bit rich. The flavour was great and very filling. Thanks for a great recipe. Read More
