Potato-Leek Soup Recipes
Potato, Leek and Broccoli Soup with Pancetta Crumbs
During its first year, Essex Farm harvested 10,000 pounds of potatoes in just one day; Kristin Kimball turned some of them into potato-leek soup.

This version has a fabulous topping of supercrispy sourdough and pancetta crumbs mixed with sage and rosemary.
Cream of Leek and Potato Soup
