Wow talk about crazy coincidence! I am right now enjoying my own bowl of potato leek soup and was browsing through SP. I checked out the team's page and saw this topic! I know it's pretty old but I thought I'd contribute anyway.

I added a sprig of fresh rosemary, a bit of dried thyme and a bay leaf. I also chopped up two fennel bulbs/plants - I don't really know what they are but I'm trying to experiment with vegetables. My recipe called for creme fraiche or heavy cream to give it some weight but I added organic greek yogurt instead - it's delicious!!

I like to use leeks sauteed in butter a slug of white wine, a bit of fresh dill, white pepper, and top with fresh chives. If I'm feeling a bit decandent, I top with some bacon crumbles and some grated cheese too.

I got some beautiful leeks in the CSA box this week and I always have potatoes in the kitchen. So of course I'm planning to make potato leek soup.

Potatoes, leeks, chicken broth, milk, salt, pepper -- any other seasonings I should consider? I've never made it before.
