This is an amazing tasting soup. Mild and sweet with a hint of garlic and parmesan. I love to serve soups in glasses, the perfect little appetizer. The white layer is plain yoghurt with tastes so good with this soup. Ramps is in season now, so run to your local farm market and get some.
Serves 6

2 tablespoons butter
3 leeks, thinly sliced
1 cup ramps, thinly sliced
1 cup water
1 cup chicken stock
1 cup milk
1 large potato, peeled and cut into cubes
salt
pepper
