Ingredients

    2 tbls. Canola Oil
    4 large leeks, sliced and washed (tough green tops and root ends removed)
    6 Medium Potatoes (or 8 small - peeled if desired), chopped
    3 large carrots, peeled and sliced
    15 g. (dry) small white beans (or use 1 1/2 cans)
    2 cups skim milk
    3cups water
    1 tbls. dried thyme (or 2 tbls. fresh)
    1 tbls. kosher salt
    1 tsp. black pepper

Directions

If using dry beans, soak overnight (or do "quick-soak" method of simmering for two minutes and then covering off heat for an hour). Drain.

In soup pot, saute leeks in canola oil until they reduce by half. Add white beans, water and seasoning and simmer for 1 hour (skip this step if using prepared beans).

Add potatoes and carrots, simmer until tender (about 15 minutes). Add milk.

Makes 8, 1.5-2 cup servings.

* You could serve with a dallop of lowfat sour cream or yogurt on top for added creaminess (not in recipe calculations).
