Number of Servings
6
Ingredients
    • 4 cups sliced leeks
    • 3 cups peeled, diced potatoes
    • 6 cups chicken broth
    • 1 cup whipping cream
    • 3 tablespoons sherry
    • diced chives

     

Instructions

Before preparing leeks, clean them thoroughly to remove any soil that may have gotten caught within the overlapping layers of this root vegetable. First, trim the rootlets and a portion of the green tops and remove the outer layer. Then wash the leeks and cut the stalks into slices. Combine the leeks, diced potatoes, and chicken broth in a pot. Cook 20 minutes.

Blend in a blender or food processor. Return mixture to the pot and stir in whipping cream, sherry, and diced chives
