Preparation

  • Melt butter over medium-low heat in a large saucepan. Add Les Cultures de chez nous sliced leeks, celery and onions and sauté for 5 minutes. Add the potato, thyme and pepper, cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are softened without being colored, about 15 minutes (lower heat if necessary).
  • Add the chicken broth and 750 ml (3 cups) of water. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover the pot and simmer for about 20 minutes or until the potatoes are very tender.
  • Using a blender, reduce the vegetables to a smooth purée. While pressing, then pass the puree through a fine sieve placed over a clean saucepan. Discard the solids. If desired, stir in the cream and bring to a boil.
  • When ready to serve, garnish with chives, if desired.
