This was pretty darn tasty. I usually don't rate a recipe unless I've made it exactly as written, but I think this one was fine as is, but better with some of the recommendations. I started out adding a clove of minced fresh garlic to the onion and leeks. I also sauteed in 1/2 butter and 1/2 Italian olive oil. Using vegetable broth instead of plain water, I added all the fresh veggies I had which was everything called for plus green beans, mushrooms, cauliflower and broccoli. I started the carrots, potatoes and rice first for 15 minutes. I used a short grain rice and put in more than was called for. After the 15 minutes, I started adding in the other veggies in order of most dense to least dense. I used 1/2 and 1/2 instead of heavy cream. After I added the spinach, I turned off the heat and the spinach wilted without further cooking. After it was done, it seemed to be missing something so I added a squeeze of fresh lemon juice to brighten it up and a teaspoon of dry mustard. This is a hit and it will be one of my "go to" soups this winter. Thanks for the great recipe!
