I love soup as much as I hate roll cookies, so I was excited by this recipe this month. When I read it I was concerned by three things: the number of potatoes (there was only one), The amount of onions (one onion and three leeks), and the amount of liquid (seven cups in total). I really shouldn't have been. This isn't Dorie's first rodeo, and she really knows what she's talking about with this one. The balance of onion, potato and herbs is perfect. She gives us some choices for serving. It can be served chunky or smooth, hot or cold. I opted for smooth, and since I live in Manitoba in the winter....hot. My husband gave it the ultimate compliment by not adding hot sauce and requesting it be made again. I have to agree with him. This is an easy, comforting week night meal.
