About 5 years ago, I came across this recipe & started serving it in the restaurant. Everyone loved it.

You can also use wild leeks in this recipe.

It is also low in carbs for the healthy benefits!

1Heat the olive oil & butter in large pot over med, high heat. Saute the leeks, carrots, celery, & minced garlic about 10 minutes, but do not allow to brown or burn, as the garlic will be bitter.
