    Good result. I generally followed the recipe: used a bunch of leeks, 3-4 cloves of garlic,4 small potatoes; a pkg of frozen spinach. Added salt, lemon pepper and a few drops of white truffle oil at end. Great with Trader Joes Parmesan Crisps.

    This soup is a winner! While I love the classic vichyssoise, the spinach adds a great flavor. And healthy too!

    Delicious. The flavors work great together, and lend a mild, savory taste. I also included 3 cloves of garlic, used 2 red potatoes instead of Yukon, and added a little heavy cream at the end. Definitely a winner in our house! I love how simple these recipes are, and don't require complicated ingredients. Yum!

    I'm a fan of spinach, but I thought the flavor of this was unbalanced and vegetal--almost unpleasantly so. The leek and potato were completely masked. I think if I ever make this again, I'll cut the spinach amount by at least 1/3 and go from there.

    This is a lovely and quick soup...the crutons was the finishing touch...I toasted in the oven after applying olive oil. When I took them out of the oven and they were still hot I rubbed fresh garlic on it...the flavors were great and so healthy!
