Preheat oven to 400°
Rinse and thoroughly dry the sliced leeks. Spread the leeks in a single layer on a baking sheet and drizzle all over with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and bake for 20 minutes or until the leeks begin to brown on the edges (they should look crispy). Give them a toss halfway through baking. Remove from oven and set aside.
Place a large stock pot on medium-high heat and begin heating the oil. Toss in the onions and cook until they begin to soften – about 4 minutes. Add the garlic and cook one more minute until fragrant. Add the stock, water and potatoes to the pot and bring to a boil. Lower the heat to simmer and continue cooking until the potatoes are fork tender – about 30 minutes.
Lower the heat and add the greens until the become softened – 2-3 minutes max. Turn the heat off on the stove, and add the parsley and ginger to the soup. Begin blending the soup in batches until creamy. Transfer the soup back to the stock pot and finish off with the fresh lemon and salt, as needed. Ladle the soup into bowls and garnish with sliced radishes and crispy leeks.
