This is the version of Potato Leek Soup that I came up with so that Laurie could enjoy the fresh leeks from the garden without any dairy products added. In fact, I have come to the conclusion that the aditions of cream and butter are highly overrated. I used a canola margarine spread for the sweat and rice milk to replace the cream, and I think it came out better than most traditional versions of this soup.
Tom Yum is by far my favorite Thai soup. this is one of the better recipes that I have found, modified to use ingredients that I can readily find at my local Asian food store and more towards my taste. I usually make this for Laurie, and make Tom Yum Gai for myself.
