3 scallions diced
20 g of butter

5 cups of reduced sodium chicken broth
salt and pepper

Preparation

in a saucepot saute scallions with butter and oil. Cut the white and light green of the leeks and throw the green part.
Add the whites of the leeks and the potatoe. Add the chiken broth. Cook for 45 minutes uncovered.
In a blender, puree the soup. Add the cream. Season to taste. Serve with some cheese. Enjoy!!!!
