Creamy Garlic-Leek Soup

Creamy garlic cream soup
Yesterday I was craving some comfort food. Plus I had a sick person in the house, so I thought about this soup I ate in Austria.

We were in the Wachau, at the Danube, and stopped at a Restaurant for lunch. We had a large breakfast at our B&B, and I just wanted something small. It was the creamiest soup I have ever tasted, plus it was delicious. I tinkered around and re-created it.
