Potato Leek Soup

Hi everyone, I am a major lurker.  The main reason being I really don't like to cook, but like to collect 
recipes for when I am in the mood.  I normally haven't gotten very creative since going fatfree vege.  But 
last night I came up with the best soup.  Lost 1/2 a pot to my mother after she tasted it.  So while it is 
still fresh in my head though I'd post it.

Potato Leek Soup (T)

5 lbs Potatoes, peeled, cubed, cover with water to prevent them from turning
4 Leeks chopped, whites only
2 medium/large size onions, chopped 
8 Carrots, peeled chopped
8 Celery stalks chopped
1 1/2 c vege broth (I used the canned variety)
2 vege bouillon cubes (or 4 cups of homemade broth)
Parsely and Pepper to taste

Saute onions and leeks in the 1 1/2c of broth, until tender.  Add rest of broth, carrots, celery and drain and 
add potatoes.  Just cover veges with water.  Bring to a boil, then turn back and simmer.  After 10 minutes 
taste and add Parsley and pepper.  When potatoes and carrots are done, scoup out and puree.  I used a food 
processor which let it a with little chunks, which added nice color (carrots) and texture.  Mix back in with 
broth.  This makes alot, but did go fast.
