Ingredients

2 teaspoons butter

2 leeks, rinsed well and chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 teaspoon dried thyme

1 teaspoon dried marjoram

4 cups leftover cooked new potatoes

6 cups reduced-sodium vegetable or chicken broth

1 cup reduced-fat sour cream

Salt and ground black pepper

4 teaspoons chopped fresh chives

Directions

  1. Heat butter in a large stock pot or Dutch oven over medium heat.
  2. Add leeks and garlic and cook 3 minutes, until soft. Add thyme and marjoram and cook 1 minute, until fragrant. Add potatoes and broth, increase heat to high and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, partially cover and simmer 5 minutes.
  3. Using an immersion blender, puree until smooth (or puree in a blender and return mixture to pot). Remove from heat and whisk in sour cream. Season, to taste, with salt and black pepper. Ladle soup into bowls and top with chives.
