"Ever since a trip to Ireland in 2001 I have wanted to recreate a leek soup I enjoyed in a small village restaurant. This is what I came up with and even my husband thinks I nailed it. My kids will eat this because it is smooth and they are not turned off by any particular ingredient."

This was great! I used vegetable broth, and only used 3 potatoes (that's all I had), but it still came out great! I added a cup of a rice/quinoa mixture at the end and it gave it a nice chewy ...
