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.
