Potato Leeks

>I got a good buy on leeks........Now what can I do with them?

Here's one of my favorites, Beverly:

---------- Recipe via Meal-Master (tm) v8.03
      Title: *Potato-Leek Soup
 Categories: Vegetarian, Mcdougall, Soups
      Yield: 4 servings
      4 c  Peeled & chunked potatoes
      4 c  Water [or broth]
      2 x  Leeks, white parts only,
           - washed well & sliced
    1/2 t  Onion powder
    1/4 t  Garlic powder
    1/8 t  Freshly ground white pepper
    1/4 t  Dried dill (optional)
    1/2 c  Chopped scallion (optional)
  Place the potatoes, water and leeks in a medium-sized soup pot. Bring to
  boil, reduce the heat, cover and cook until the potatoes are tender,
  30 minutes. Transfer to a blender or food processor and process until
  smooth and creamy. Or transfer only half of the soup to a blender or
  processor and blend until smooth and creamy. Return to the pan and stir
  mix. This will yield a creamy soup with chunks of vegetables.
  Add the remaining ingredients. Heat through. (If you are using the
  optional ingredients, cook over very low heat for 10 minutes.) Serve

  Comments: using a hand blender right in the soup pot worked fine.
