    Wonderful recipe! I have never cooked with leeks before, so it was neat to try something new. I might use a 1/2 or so less water next time. Also, 1 tablespoon of pepper is a lot!! Just a warning for those who don’t want it too hot:) I will definitely make again, thanks!

    If you peel and cut the potatoes into really small pieces there will be close to no starch. If you want to you can then blend the entire soup without it becoming walpaper paste. Maybe adding a little butter of something else that fits your own taste…

    Also cutting the potatoes makes the entire cooking process slightly quicker…
