    Enjoy this original, homemade Leek and Fennel Soup which is creamy and deliciously filling. I use about a pound of potatoes for this recipe and 3 large leeks. Fennel, leeks and garlic are my go to ingredients for flavor in the soup and I add a thick heavy cream to bring it all together. Garnish with some fennel fronds and thick-cut, turkey bacon for the finishing touches.
