  • As I had heaps of leeks in

    Submitted by Lady_Cena on 11. January 2014 - 18:40.

    As I had heaps of leeks in the fridge that needed to be used I omitted the onion & substituted the leek instead. I found that I couldn't fit all of the litre of water in so I used about 750ml, whichever worked fine. Also, I used only about ½ tablespoon of stock and didn't add salt when seasoning as the stock is so salty. Overall, a very yummy soup!

  • I agree with Pontifek with

    I agree with Pontifek with sautéing the leeks and onions (on Varoma temp) at the start, and also with not adding the extra stock. Exactly what I would do next time too. I might also try sautéing the bacon with the leeks and onions at the start too to slightly caramelise it.

  • Lovely, didn't have any leeks

    Lovely, didn't have any leeks but could taste the raw onion flavour. I would blitz the onion and sauté in the butter first and then start at step one next time. Also didn't need the extra 500gms of water or stock. Just add salt and pepper at step five.

  • This is a really lovely soup

    This is a really lovely soup and very easy to make.  I had the same problem with the amont of water too - I could only add 400 g.  This didn't affect the soup though - I think that if I had added the whole litre it would've been too thin.

  • Really tasty, nice texture,

    Really tasty, nice texture, creamy yummy soup. Kids and adults all loved it. Only difference I did was only added 300ml water at step 5 as this took my soup to the 2L limit mark - not sure why I had so much more soup at this point than you must have!

  • I did a slight variation on

    Submitted by Chantimama on 30. March 2012 - 23:11.

    I did a slight variation on this one, as I didn't add the celery (my husband hates it!).  I thought it was quite good, but I over-seasoned it with salt before adding the second lot of stock.  It ended up just a smidge too salty.  Otherwise, it was lovely!  The texture was really good...even my super-fussy, veggie-hating, almost-3-year-old liked it.  She ate the rest of mine, and then her bowl, and still asked for more!  Will make it again (without adding extra salt!). Thanks for the recipe!  tmrc_emoticons.D
