I don’t know about you, but I love leeks. They have such a delicate and sweet flavor, so unlike their more robust onion cousins. I have paired them with salmon to make this delicious, creamy Leek & Salmon Soup. There’s something really wonderful about the richness of salmon as it plays against the sweet vegetable here.
