A member of the onion and garlic family, leeks have a uniquely wonderful, almost sweet flavor. They are a rich source of vitamins C & A, and Folate. If new to cooking with leeks, have no fear, it couldn’t be simpler. Choose firm, stalks without withered tops. Remove tough, green tops, slice lengthwise and rinse thoroughly to remove sandy soil they are grown in. That’s it. Enjoy!

Ingredients

1 head Cauliflower, chopped

2 Leeks, chopped (use the white and light green portion)

1 Red Potato, chopped with skin on

1 tablespoons Butter

2 tablespoon Olive Oil

2 cups Chicken Stock or Vegetable Stock

4 cups Water

1/4 cup White Wine

Salt & Pepper to taste

fresh or dried Parsley for garnish
