Potato and Wild Leek Soup

Potato and Wild Leek Soup created by Barb 3663

Leeks (some call them "ramps" ) grow wild here in the foothills of the Alleghenies. I adpated this from a recipe that I found online. The ingredient list below says "ramps" because Recipezaar kept changing it from "wild leeks" to "leek" which is a completely different vegetable.

    Excellent recipe. I like that it is lower fat than other recipes. Easy to make.
