Add olive oil to a large saucepan on medium high heat. Add carrots, celery and onions. Then add leeks and stir.
Partially cover the top of the pot with the lid while the vegetables cook. Stir occasionally. Once the carrots have softened (about 10 minutes) add milk, broth and potatoes and bring to boil over high heat. Reduce heat and simmer until the potatoes are soft (about another ten minutes).
Remove from heat and season to taste. Let cool and use a blender or hand immersion tool to blend the ingredients together.
