  • Cook leeks in hot oil in Dutch oven on medium-high heat 5 min. or until tender, stirring occasionally. Add potatoes, water and pepper; cover. Bring to boil; simmer on medium-low heat 15 to 20 min. or until potatoes are tender. Cool 10 min.
  • Blend leek mixture, in batches, in blender until smooth, returning each blended batch to Dutch oven.
  • Add cream cheese gradually to soup, cooking and stirring after each addition on medium until cream cheese is completely blended and soup is well blended. Stir in milk; cook and stir 5 min. or until heated through. Sprinkle with chives.

Make Ahead

This soup can be made ahead and frozen. Prepare as directed, omitting the cream cheese, milk and chives. Cool, then freeze in 12 equal portions. To reheat, thaw 1 portion of soup in refrigerator, then pour into microwaveable bowl. Microwave on HIGH 3 min. or until heated through. Stir in 1 Tbsp. each of the cream cheese and milk. Microwave on HIGH 1 min. Stir until cream cheese is melted and soup is heated through. Sprinkle with about 1-1/2 tsp. chives.

Produce Preparation

Leeks are grown in sandy soil so must be washed well before use. To prepare the leek, trim the root, then remove the dark green portion. Only the white and light green parts of the leek are used; chop these parts, then rinse in water to remove any sand.

Easy Cleanup

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 for 30 sec. Pour wash water out and rinse with fresh hot water.
