This was an amazing sort of comfort food to come home to. I tossed everything into the crock pot before heading to work, came back and mushed it all together, sat down, and enjoyed. I had gotten both leeks and potatoes through my CSA last weekend, and really wanted to make this. I am glad I did. Wow did my house smell delightful.

4 Leeks, chopped fine
4-5 russet potatoes (if you are using huge ones, use fewer) cut into moderate sized pieces. I did not peel (I love potato peel) but feel free to peel if you are not of a like mind)
4 cups vegetable broth
Salt and pepper to taste

Toss everything into the slow cooker and cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours. Mash with a potato masher (or run through a food processor if you prefer creamier soup).
Optional deliciousness includes a little bit of sour cream and grated cheddar cheese to top off each bowl. 

If you are not planning on feeding vegetarians, add 4 pieces of bacon, crumbled, into the slow cooker.
