      3/4   lb           Leeks -- very thinly sliced
                         Butter
 
   Drop the thinly sliced leeks (tender green parts as
   well as white) into 1/2-inch fast-boiling salted
   water.  Cook until very tender.  Save the cooking
   liquor.  Whizz the leeks to a smooth, pale green
   puree.  Season, enrich with knobs of butter and thin
   with a little of the cooking liquor if liked.  Serve
   garnished with a bouquet of green coriander and
   triangles of fried bread.  Add some soft-boiled eggs
   for a quick vegetarian supper.
