no potatoes are allowed in phase one, but it sounds really good :)

no potatoes allowed in Phase II
Just needs tweeking. Soak and rinse potatos well then bake or boil separate then add to the soup. With 6 leeks there is no need for the onion. A bell pepper and some garlic would be nice. Cooking spray instead of olive oil. And these extra spices; garlic powder, pinch of thyme, and a hand full of parsley. With these ajustments I can give it 5 stars. I don't know about phases.
I added 3 garlic cloves and trocomare seasoning before simmering. I also added a small amount of sour cream and cheddar cheese to garnish. I also used red potatoes since they have less starch and more flavor.
