I added 3 sliced carrots and 3 stalks of celery and sautéed with the leeks. I used 2% milk instead of fat free half and half. It’s delicious! Hubby approved too. I’ll definitely make this recipe again! Read More

Yum! I stirred in 1/2 lb shredded Monterey Jack/ Colby into the mix after finishing the recipe. I like a little sauerkraut and Dark Rye bread on the side. Read More

It was quick and easy. I would have used more leeks and more potatoes however as even after doubling the recipe, there could have been more. I did add 3 cloves of garlic as other Potato-Leek soups had garlic and it was good. Now I have one good recipe for my Instant Pot! Read More
