Ingredients

    1/2 pound: Green Beans, fresh or frozen
    2: Leeks, sliced
    4: Potatoes, large, peeled and sliced
    3 Tbsp: Butter
    6 Cups: Water
    2 cups: Milk (recipe based on 2%)
    salt and pepper to taste
    Garnish (optional):
    Green beans, cut and cooked
    Chives, finely chopped

Directions

1. Wash and clean string beans, removing ends and strings. (Use frozen if you don't have fresh ones.) Prepare the leeks and potatoes.

2. In a large pot, melt the butter and saute the vegetables for 1 minute. Stir often. Add the water and bring to a boil. Lower the heat to low-medium, cover pot, and cook the soup slowly for about 40 minutes.

3. When the vegetables are cooked and tender, blend in a blender. Return the soup to the pot and add milk and seasonings. Stir the soup well and bring it again to a light boil. Turn off the heat and let the soup stand for 10 minutes. Serve the soup hot in a bowl or mug, and garnish it with small cut green beans that have been cooked separately, or sprinkle with some finely chopped chives if you wish.
