Leeks are a food I've actually never had until recently. I'd heard about them, and I wanted to try them. I just never actually got around to buying any. So when I saw leeks on sale again, I knew it was time to put away all those excuses and just get some. I'd heard leeks are kinda like giant green onions, so I put a little in some miso soup, and we really liked it. However, the soup I always hear about as far as leeks are concerned is Potato Leek Soup. And now's as good a time as any! I kept the skins on the potatoes since we usually eat skin on, and the soup was still plenty creamy. You could easily peel the potatoes if it's your preference. (If you do, it'll certainly make for prettier pictures!) :)

What's your favorite way to eat leeks?
