Delicious and not too filling so it's the perfect soup before lunch or dinner.

Lilianna Peila

Slightly grainy but still filling for a light meal or before you have the main course.

Wasn't sure I'd like this or not since I tend to hate leeks and so do my kids but it looked so tasty I just had to try it, now we make it every Monday and everyone gobbles it up without hesitation :)
