Introduction

I have discovered leeks--awesome and my stick blender--the world of soups is opening up!
Very tasty and low cal--you can have this with a salad or have a yogurt and blueberries for dessert--nice mid day meal on a cold day and quick to make.

8 servings--one cup

Ingredients

    3 large leeks
    1 large sweet onion
    4 medium potatoes (2 1/4-3 1/4")
    4 cups of fat-free chicken broth
    water for consistency
    3 Tbsp butter
    salt and pepper to taste
    one cup fat-free half and half ( you CAN get by with half a cup and it will still taste good)

Directions

cut any brown tips, and roots off the leeks but you will use all of leek. Slice leeks, break apart and WASH thoroughly!
Chop onion.
Peel, dice and rinse potatoes.
Saute leeks and onion in the butter until soft.
Put into a heavy saucepan. Add the broth and potato, salt and pepper.
Cover and cook on medium heat until potatoes are tender.
Use stick blender and puree the whole mixture.
Add half and half cream and heat through.
Add water if you wish but this is a fairly thick soup.
Enjoy!

    I used celery as well. And I don't have an immersion blender so I just ladled a bunch of the soup into my regular blender, pureed it and pour it back into the pot. - 1/15/12

    This is very good! The only thing I added was some garlic, just because I love garlic and onions together. I didn't have an immersion blender so I just poured it into my ninja. - 1/14/12

    Absolutely amazing. I took a lot longer to make it because I cooked up the potatoes in my dutch oven. So good though. I didn't want to share and also didn't feel the need to toss a bunch of cheese in it like I do with most soups. - 9/23/11

    This was a very good recipe, quick and simple. I did replace 2 of the cups of water with vegetable broth, which gave it a more robust flavor. Other than that, GREAT IDEA with the herbs. THANK YOU! - 4/21/10

    Perfect! I didn't add the 1/2 and 1/2 at all - just water with some chicken consomme powder mix for flavor ... still delicious. I also left the skin on the potatoes (after scrubbing VERY well). - 1/8/10
