I read other's posts and agreed with those who aimed for a richer version. So my liquids were organic chicken stock and 2% milk. It was a very rich and creamy base, but I did not feel that it was too rich - I guess the 2% milk that I had on hand might have been a good offset to the whole milk.
For now, enjoy the Potato Leek soup photos as much as we enjoyed the soup last night. And for the record, I gave my hubby both the chunky version and then a bowl after I used my immersion mixer. He preferred chunky (too late ;). Both sons agreed when they later had a bowl and explained that they would have liked it more if there were "pieces of potato" in it. I will know for next time and this dish was so simple and delicious that there WILL be a next time.
Happy Holidays from Tricia and Nana !!
