How to make it

  • Cut off root end of leeks and discard.
  • Halve leeks lengthwise and thinly slice.
  • Soak leek slices in several changes of water to rid of any sand.
  • Heat oil over low flame in a heavy bottomed pot.
  • Add leeks and garlic and cook, covered, until leeks have wilted, (about 20 minutes).
  • Add remaining ingedients and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce heat to low and cook, partially covered, for 3-4 hours.
  • After 2 hours, check regularly and add liquid as necessary. Do not add too much or soup will lose the velvety texture it developes with the slow, long cooking!
  • May add 1/4 cup corn, tomato, or spinach with mushrooms. I don't.
