Cock a' leekie soup. Mmmmmmm. Sprinkle some of those pea shoots on the top of each bowl. Go wild. LOL.

potato leek soup. Last year, when we had too many leeks from the garden to cook, I washed them well and sliced them. Then froze them in baggies and pulled out a bag whenever I wanted to make soup and they were ready to toss in.

Leeks in orange sauce, from a Sophie Grigson book.
Thinly slice leeks, gently fry in olive oil until softened, but not browned. Sprinkle over a tablespoon'ish of flour - judge according to how many leeks you're cooking ! - , cook flour out. Add orange juice and veg stock, cook until sauce thickens. I like to add a little lemon thyme. Fab with chicken.

O.K., I've found a version of her recipe where she uses butter and milk. Must make a creamier sauce. Obviously ! :

If you go to the BBC FOOD page you can type Leeks into the search box for a couple of hundred recipes that use Leeks.

I love the BBC !

Leaf Lettuce
Pea Shoots
Grass Grazed Milk (skim, 2%, or whole)
Free Range Brown eggs
Grassfed Blue Gouda
Mild Italian sausage from Berkshire pork
Large hearty sausage buns
Jonagold apples

Vegetarian Substitutes:
Chocolate mint

Vegan substitutes:

Our first CSA box isn't for another week. I can't wait.
I love potato leek soup. Add the green garlic, and the greens right at the end. I do this whenever I'm lucky enough to find sorrel at the market. Sorrel leek soup is divine.
Our you can slice the leeks lengthwise and grill or roast them.

I can take those leeks off your hands, if you want. Will swap for fiber?

Otherwise, I've got a recipe for potato leek tart if you want, or maybe I can tweak it just spring veggie tart. I'll send it along.
