Delicious! Even better the second day (as is the way with most soups). I did however add a can of cream of celery soup to it to make it look creamier. Excellent recipe. Read More

I did not like this soup. I used white onion instead of leek and I did not have any ham but that was not the problem. It was the spices....they do not go well in this soup. Read More

Thanks for this great recipe! It was easy and very tasty! I omitted the butter and added more vegies and ham. Had discovered frozen/cut up leeks at Trader Joe's which makes using this veg much more convenient. What a time saver that was! Yummy soup! Read More

I increased the size greatly as I was feeding 15. Used the program to change quantity to 12 servings then doubled that. Had some leftover which I suspect will be even better next day. I had no garlic powder so substituted dried minced garlic and put an extra amount of ham since part of th group was hard-working men. It was a great winter night soup and praised by the whole group! I did not use the celery (personal preference) but used a couple cans of cream of celery soup to give the flavor and make the broth more hearty. This is a keeper! Read More

This soup was so easy and very tasty! I did make changes due to either not having enough time or ingredients. I used leftover baked potatoes diced. Instead of leeks and celery (which I never buy) I used cooking onions and broccoli. I don't like dill so I left this out. I used 1/2 tsp pepper. I also added more broth - 9 cups instead of 6 (maybe because I added quite a bit of broccoli). I didn't have time to use the slow cooker so I boiled the soup for 20-30 min. There didn't seem to be a need for the butter since the vegetables were not being fried first. My family really enjoyed this! It used up a lot of leftovers in the fridge and took very little time to prepare! My husband is lactose intolerant so it was a plus that the soup did not use any dairy. Read More

I try to follow the recipe exactly for the first time. And I did up to the last few minutes the broth was too thin for my taste so I added some instant potatoes to thicken it some. Tasted good and would make again. Read More

Very bland. Made it exactly according to the recipe and it tastes just "okay." No better than that. Needs more spice or something. And something to thicken the soup a bit. I may try it again but I'll have t add a few things. Read More
