It's Almost Spring...Time To Taste A Leek!

Ha ha...a little play on words.

The first time my neighbor, Cheryl, mentioned potato leek soup my eyeballs rolled, and a I told her no way would we ever eat potato leek soup!  Yuck!  pulverized onions, potatoes and cream?  Well, I couldn't have been more wrong.

Cheryl's recipe was very basic, butter, leeks, potatoes, salt and pepper, but it was very good, and I started experimenting with my own recipes.  I made hearty herb infused soups and simple recipes, and I found I liked something in the middle.

Bob likes his soup with a little texture, so I make sure I leave some chunks in it for him.  I like a bit of fresh, but delicate, onion flavor, and I achieve this with a little fresh chives on top with a touch of heavy cream.  Oh, come on...a little will not clog your arteries or put on any weight.  You can omit it, if you desire.

Enjoy and Chow!
