2 medium leek
4 small scallions
8 small russet potatoes
3 tbsp smart balance
14 oz chicken broth

Recipe Directions for Potato Leek Soup

  1. Making sure leeks are well rinsed, dice leeks-using the bulb and stopping just before the green leaves. Dice scallions, if they are small use entire scallion; other wise dice about 3/4 of the scallion.

  2. Heat smart balance in soup pot and add leeks and scallions. Stir occasionally until leeks start to wilt. Then add the chicken broth, and bring to a boil.

  4. Once broth is boiling add the potatoes, and turn down the heat to a simmer. Simmer for 30 minutes or until potatoes are cooked.
