Thank you very much Tine for sharing your recipe!

 Probably you already know it but in Belgium it is very common to eat soup for lunch in winter.  They make soups with all kind of vegetables. Maybe the most common is the tomato soup.  Tine told me about this leek soup and I was very curious so I ask her to give me the recipe. I prepared it a few months ago it is really tasty and very easy. In Spain we are more used to make soups with pasta. The Belgium soups would be like our “purés” but the only difference is the amount of water that you add. I hope you like the recipe. Suggestions and comments are always welcome!
