  • 2 Tbs. chopped fresh thyme, for garnish
  • ¼ cup dry sherry (fino) or dry white wine
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 2 Tbs. olive oil
  • ½ tsp. white peppercorns, lightly crushed
  • 3 cups chopped leeks, white and light green parts only (from 2 to 3 large leeks), rinsed and drained
  • 3 sprigs fresh thyme
  • + 6 more ingredients
    • 1 tsp. coarse salt; more to taste
    • ¼ cup heavy cream (optional)
    • 6 cups homemade or low-salt canned chicken broth
    • 3 or 4 slices of fine-crumbed white bread (I like Pepperidge Farm), crusts removed and cut into ½-inch cubes
    • 1 lb. parsnips, peeled, quartered, and cut into 1-inch pieces
    • 2 small bay leaves, broken in half

Heat the 1/3 cup oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the bread cubes and fry, tossing and stirring, until crisp and golden on all sides. Drain on paper towels.
