Creamy Potato-Leek Soup - WW


A classic French soup that is a snap to prepare. We caramelized the leeks first to give the soup a more robust flavor.

Step 1

Melt butter in a large stockpot over medium heat; add leeks and sauté until leeks turn translucent and start to caramelize, about 10 minutes.

Add broth, salt and pepper to pot; increase heat to high and bring to a boil.

Add potatoes and reduce heat to low; simmer, partially covered until potatoes are tender, about 20 to 25 minutes.

Puree soup in pot using an immersion blender (or working in small batches, puree the soup in a blender, careful not to splatter the hot liquid). Adjust seasonings if necessary, stir in sour cream and garnish with chives. Yields about 1 cup per serving.
