4 large leeks (about 2 lb.), cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
4 large russet potatoes, peeled, cubed (about 4 cups)
1-1/4 qt. (5 cups) water
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 cup milk
1/4 cup chopped fresh chives
Let's Make It
Heat 1/4 cup of the dressing in large stockpot on medium heat. Add leeks; cook 5 min. or until tender, stirring occasionally. Add potatoes, water, salt and pepper; cover. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 15 to 20 min. or until potatoes are tender. Cool 10 min.
Add leek mixture, in batches, to blender; cover. Blend until pureed. Return to stockpot.
Stir in milk and remaining 1/4 cup dressing; cook on medium heat until heated through, stirring frequently. Sprinkle with chives just before serving.
To quickly clean your blender, fill the container half-full with hot water. Add a few drops of liquid dish soap, then cover. Blend on high speed 30 sec. Pour wash water out and rinse with fresh hot water.
You'd never guess that this creamy soup is low in fat. As a bonus, the leeks are a good source of vitamin A.
