    Directions:

    1. 1
      1. Separate broccoli stems from florets. Using a vegetable peeler, peel stems to remove tough outer layer, then slice into 1/4 inch thick "coins." Break or cut the florets into small pieces. Reserve stems and florets separately.
    2. 2
      2. In a medium saucepan, heat oil and butter over medium heat. Add leaks and cook, stirring often, until softened and fragrant, about 3 minutes.
    3. 3
      3. Add broccoli stems, potato, and garlic, and cook 2 to 3 minutes.
    4. 4
      4. Add 3 cups of water, broth, salt, and pepper; bring to a boil.
    5. 5
      5. Reduce heat; cover partially, and simmer until broccoli and potato are tender, about 12 minutes.
    6. 6
      6. Add florets, bring to a boil and then simmer 5 minutes. Transfer soup in batches to a blender or food processor, and puree until smooth.
    7. 7
      7. Return soup to saucepan; add half and half and chives, and reheat briefly.

      Had broccoli & leeks, guests coming, found this. YUM. Simple, easy and tasty. No half and half or chives this time. Did use a dollop of sour cream. This is a keeper!
