Author:
Recipe type: Soup & Stew
Ingredients
  • 3 large leeks (1½ pounds), white and light-green parts trimmed
  • 1 medium clove garlic, minced
  • 4 small Yukon gold potatoes (1½ pounds), peeled
  • 5 carrots (9 ounces), peeled
  • 2½ cups homemade chicken stock, or canned low-sodium chicken broth, skimmed of fat
  • 1½ teaspoons salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 3 tablespoons snipped fresh chives
  • olive-oil cooking spray
Instructions
  1. Coarsely chop leeks; place in a bowl of cold water. Let stand 5 minutes to rid them of dirt and sand; lift out of water; drain in a colander.
  2. Spray bottom of a small stockpot with olive-oil spray; place over low heat. Add leeks and garlic; cover and cook, stirring occasionally until leeks are wilted, about 12 minutes.
  3. Cut 2 potatoes into small chunks; add to leeks. Slice 3 carrots into ¼-inch-thick rounds; add to vegetables along with stock, salt, pepper, and 2 cups water. Cover partially, raise heat to high, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook until vegetables are tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in milk, and puree in a blender until smooth. Let stand until cool; refrigerate until cold.
  4. Meanwhile, finely julienne remaining 2 potatoes and 2 carrots; place in a small pot of boiling water. Boil until just tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Drain; transfer to ice-water bath until cool. Drain; add carrots and potatoes to pureed soup. To serve, divide soup among 6 bowls, and garnish each with snipped chives.
