Happy Go Leeky Soup

from Crazy Plates

 

1 T. butter

2 cups sliced leeks (whites + 1" green)

1 cup chopped celery

1 cup chopped carrot

3 cups chopped peeled potato (I used 2 potatoes)

4 cups veggie broth

3/4 tsp. dried thyme

1/2 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. pepper

1 cup buttermilk (I used lowfat)

1 T. chopped fresh dill (I used a little extra)

 

1. Saute leeks and celery in butter in large pot for about 5 minutes, until soft.

2. Add carrot, potato, broth, thyme, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes.

3. Puree in blender or food processor in batches, return to pot.

4. Stir in buttermilk and dill.

 

I counted this as 1.5 points per cup. It was delicious and filling with some whole-grain toast.

Yum! I really liked the flavor that the bettermilk gave this - it was light, but filling.

I made it tonight and it is really, really good! It seems so creamy because you blend it. I also added a lot of dill. I am lazy so I shredded my carrots in the food processor and used frozen diced potatoes so it was really easy! I will make this often! Thanks for sharing!

Bumping! I Core-ified this using EEVO and FF evaporated milk in place of the butter and buttermilk. Delicious!

I sub'd olive oil for the butter and used dried dill and it turned out GREAT! Served with cottage cheese and whole wheat toast. YUM!

Won"t be making this one again.....we found it way too bland....as much help as it needed to make it tasty, I could have made a different soup entirely.
