Tried making this soup for lunch. It is really delicious. What I like is that no cream is needed :)

I just made this and I'm happy with how it turned out. I used coconut oil instead of veg oil and put about 2 Tbs in there. I also left the skin on the potatoes but other than that I followed the recipe.

This soup was really quick and easy, I liked the texture too. I think I would add celery or leave some chunks. I also added a dollop of sour cream at the end and it gave it just a touch more flavour. Although not the tastiest, still pretty great!

I thought the ratio of potato to leek was a little off.
