       Title: *Potato-Leek Soup
  Categories: Vegetarian, Mcdougall, Soups
       Yield: 4 servings
  
       4 c  Peeled & chunked potatoes
       4 c  Water [or broth]
       2 x  Leeks, white parts only,
            - washed well & sliced
     1/2 t  Onion powder
     1/4 t  Garlic powder
     1/8 t  Freshly ground white pepper
     1/4 t  Dried dill (optional)
     1/2 c  Chopped scallion (optional)
  
   Place the potatoes, water and leeks in a medium-sized soup pot. Bring to a
   boil, reduce the heat, cover and cook until the potatoes are tender, about
   30 minutes. Transfer to a blender or food processor and process until
   smooth and creamy. Or transfer only half of the soup to a blender or
   processor and blend until smooth and creamy. Return to the pan and stir to
   mix. This will yield a creamy soup with chunks of vegetables.
   
   Add the remaining ingredients. Heat through. (If you are using the
   optional ingredients, cook over very low heat for 10 minutes.) Serve

   Comments: using a hand blender right in the soup pot worked fine.
