1 pound leeks, cleaned and dark green sections removed, approximately 4 to 5 medium
3 tablespoons Oilerie Dill EVOO
Heavy pinch kosher salt, plus additional for seasoning
14 ounces, approximately 3 small, Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and diced small
1 quart vegetable broth
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 teaspoon white pepper
1/4 cup crispy bacon
Oilerie Truffle EVOO, for drizzling
1. Chop the leeks into small pieces.
2. In a 6-quart saucepan over medium heat, add the Oilerie Dill EVOO. Add the leeks and a heavy pinch of salt and sweat for 5 minutes.
