Yield: 8 Servings
Categories: Soups, Potatoes

Ingredients:

4 Medium-size leeks (about 1
-pound)
2 ts Non-diet, tub style
-margarine
3 1/4 c Chicken stock or broth
-(defatted), divided
3 1/2 c Peeled and diced potatoes
-(1-1/2 pounds)
3 c Broccoli florets
1/4 ts White pepper
1 1/2 c Whole milk
Salt to taste
1 tb Lemon juice
1 To 2 tsp. finely chopped
-chives for garnish
-(optional)


Thoroughly was leek leaves, which tend to collect sand. Trim off and
discard root ends and all but about 1 inch of green tops. Peel off and
discard 1 to 2 layers of tough outer leaves. Cut leeks crosswise into 1/2
inch pieces.

In Dutch oven or large saucepan, melt margarine over medium heat. Add leeks
and 3 Tbsp. of stock; cook, stirring frequently, about 10 minutes, until
leeks are tender but not browned. If liquid begins to evaporate, lower heat
slightly and add more stock. Add remaining chicken stock, potatoes,
broccoli and pepper.

Lower heat, cover, and simmer about 11-14 minutes, until potatoes and
broccoli are tender. Remove pot from heat and let cool slightly. In
batches, puree mixture in a blender on low speed 10 seconds. Then raise
speed to high and puree until completely smooth. Return puree to pot in
which it was cooked. Add milk; stir to mix well. Simmer an additional 4 -
5 minutes. Refrigerate about 5 hours. Before serving stir in lemon juice
and add salt, if desired. Garnish with chopped chives.
