Seasonal Eating: Spring Leek Soup

April 15, 2013

Enjoy a lighter meal this spring with a creamy Leek and Potato soup. Do try to find creme fraiche, for the velvety texture. You are going to make this a staple after tasting how wonderful it is. Don't forget how well leeks stand up to the freezer, so buy all you can from your farmers market!

3 large Leeks (Cleaned and Thinly Sliced)
