Leeks are such a great addition to soup and you’ll love this hearty soup with potatoes and other fresh veggies.
Leeks are part of the Allium family which also includes onions and garlic. When using leeks in cooking, be sure to wash them well. Because they have many layers to them, sandy-dirt collects in those layers so the best way to get them clean is to slice them in half lengthwise and put them into the sink filled with clean cold water and swish them around.
This recipe has been adapted from Jamie Oliver. The measurements and ingredients have been varied.
