"It calls for leeks, should I use the green part on top?"
"Why not," says Kenny.
Sure why not? Probably has more nutrition. I am making soup tonight. After a week of butter, cream, beef, pastries, cheese spread, more cheese spread, I thought it time for a simple meal. And there it was in the newest issue of Cooking Light Magazine, the golden winter soup. It looked so nice in the photo. A shade of golden yellow from the butternut squash in the ingredients.
And here is where the leeks come in. When I used the whizzer 6000 hand held boat motor blender to puree my potatoe, squash and leek soup, it turned green. More like split pea.
I guess that answers the question about the top of the leeks.
