Potato Leek Soup

  • 5 cups roughly chopped leek, white and light green parts
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 pounds Yukon potatoes peeled and roughly chopped
  • 7 cups vegetable or chicken broth
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup light cream
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • chopped chives for garnish

Over medium heat, sauté the chopped leek and garlic in butter, stirring regularly until soft and wilted.

Add potatoes, broth, salt and pepper and bring to a boil. Cover and turn the heat down to low. Simmer for 30 minutes or until the potatoes are soft.

Purée the soup with a hand-blender until smooth. Add the cream and bring to a simmer until you reach the desired thickness.

Serve and garnish with chopped chives.
