Crab-and-Leek Bisque Johnson Creek

Serve piping hot with cornbread on the side.

  • 3 leeks (about 1½ pounds)
  • 1 stick butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • ½ cup dry white wine
  • 2 cups half-and-half
  • 8 ounces backfin crab meat
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground white pepper
  • sliced leeks for garnish

Remove roots, tough outer leaves and green tops from leeks. Split leeks in half, wash and cut halves into thin slices.

Melt butter in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add leeks and garlic, and cook until tender.

Add flour, stirring until smooth. Then cook 1 minute, stirring constantly.

Gradually add broth and wine. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is thickened (about 4 minutes).

Stir in half-and-half, crab meat and salt and pepper. Garnish with sliced leeks.

Serves 6.
