We grew leeks in our garden this summer and we were finally able to harvest them this weekend! <happy dance> Four beautiful leeks were ready to go and I decided to make a soup out of them. I hadn't made a potato and leek soup before, so I decided to go for it.
The soup is so easy to put together and the ingredients compliment each other really well. Some recipes call for heavy cream, but my version turned out thick and creamy without any added dairy. For garnish, I used a mixture of roasted bacon and fresh thyme from our garden which tasted like savory meets autumn. You're going to love it.
