potato leek soup

Potato leek soup is a classic dish from British cuisine and is most favoured in winter when served warm and in summers it can be served cold.

Leek is one of the national emblem of Wales (as per wiki) and has a mild onion like taste. The white bulb part and the tender green leaves are the edible portion and it is full of flavour. The dark green leaves are usually discarded. Leeks can be used to make vegetable broth because of their mild flavour and can be used raw in salads.
