This leek and potato soup. for French Fridays with Dorie,was quick and easy to prepare. My husband loved it. I chose to use my immersion blender to achieve a silky smooth creamy consistency. The soup tasted as good as one with loads of added cream but this recipe called only for milk. I was surprised that the vegetables boiled in the milk. I thought the milk might "break" and become separated and ugly, but Dorie knew what she was doing. I thought the picture was a bit bland at first so I added a dried celery leaf for color. The remaining soup was gobbled up as part of my husband's lunch. Another winner!
