Potato Leek Soup
I’ve been walking right by the leeks when I shop the produce aisle. They just look too much like overgrown green onions to me. Started thinking, “green onions? Nothing really bad about green onions.” Picked up a bunch last time around. I had my iTouch with me, and my MiFi hotspot so I looked through Google for recipes. Wanted to make sure that I had everything needed to do something interesting with the leeks. Hmm, potato leek soup, potato leek soup…more soup. OK, I can take soup for an answer.
Emeril has a very well rated potato leek soup recipe. I went with his, and wasn’t disappointed. It was pretty easy and I had it ready before I had given much thought to presentation. Hmm….croutons?
Went with some sliced hoagie rolls toasted and spread with goat cheese and sprinkled with the dried Tex-Mex peppers I used in the burgers yesterday. Yummy.
