Yesterday I got a new cookbook, The Angelica Home Kitchen: Recipes and Rabble Rousings from an Organic Vegan Kitchen. When I bought it home I was looking at soup recipes when I saw a sidebar that caught my attention. It said that you can make a good soup broth with the green tops of leeks. Well I have been bringing leeks home from the garden and discarding the greens up to now. So I decided right then and there to go get some leeks from my garden and make broth. It also calls for carrots, celery, herbs, garlic etc in equal quantity total to the leek tops. Well it is cooling on the stove right now and quite delicious.

  1. Wash leek tops and cut with scissors into two inch pieces. 4 large or 8 small leeks make approximately 8 cups.
  2. Chop 4 carrots and 4 ribs of celery(keep the leaves).
  3. Add 4 cloves of garlic
  4. Add fresh herbs. I used parsley.
  5. Cover with water-about 10 cups and bring to a boil.
  6. Simmer for 1 hour.
  7. Strain and use in your soup recipes or freeze for later.
