Delicious comfort food! I substituted dried thyme and used half chicken/half vegetable broth. Added some cremini mushrooms (sauteed them with the leeks) and left the peels on the potatoes. Added a little extra salt, too. This is creamy and so tasty. I served it with a fruit salad and crackers. Can't wait to eat the leftovers. Definitely will make this again.
Wild Rice and Leek Soup

Amazingly delicious recipe! I only substituted a few things (out of necessity): I used russet potato instead of red, and dried thyme instead of fresh. Everything came out wonderfully however. The wild rice, leek, and potato combination is magical. MAKE THIS SOUP! There were no leftovers, but I am sure they would have been tasty.

A little time consuming, but totally worth it.

I thought this was quite good but it was a bit too earthy for my husband. It was a perfect meal to use ingredients I just happened to have on hand. For the rice I used leftovers from a hearty wild rice mix we'd had earlier in the week.
