  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup sliced leeks

  • 6 cups chicken stock or broth
  • 1 cup milk

In a large saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the leeks, potatoes, broccoli stalks, and chicken stock and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover and simmer for 20 minutes.

Stir in the broccoli florets and cook for 3 minutes. Working in batches, puree the soup in a blender or food processor. Return the soup to the saucepan.
