Leeks and potatoes provide the base for this hearty vegetable soup, and butternut squash adds a hint of sweetness. Gruyère toasts add a salty note.

Recipe Ingredients for Golden Winter Soup

2 tablespoons butter
2 cups butternut squash (about 1 1/2 pounds)
2 cups potato (about 12 ounces)
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 cups sliced leek (about 2 medium)
2 cups fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
1/2 cup half-and-half
1 1/2 tablespoons chopped chives
1 Freshly ground black pepper (optional)

Recipe Directions for Golden Winter Soup

Melt butter in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add squash, potato, salt, and pepper to pan; sauté 3 minutes. Add leek; sauté 1 minute. Stir in broth; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes or until potato is tender, stirring occasionally. Place half of potato mixture in a blender. Remove center piece of blender lid (to allow steam to escape); secure blender lid on blender. Place a clean towel over opening in blender lid (to avoid splatters). Blend until smooth. Pour into a large bowl. Repeat procedure with remaining potato mixture. Stir in half-and-half. Cover and keep warm.
