    The Savory Truffle's Note:

    Extraordinary!! I got this from Food Network in order to use up some frozen artichokes. If you want to be authentic to Giada, then use 1/3 cup mascarpone cheese instead of neufchatel. I used the less-fat cream cheese to lower the fat a bit and because it's cheaper. There is also an issue of leftover strings from the artichokes. It did not bother me, but you may want to strain before serving.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Heat oil in large pot over medium heat.
    2. 2
      Add leeks and garlic, cook and stir for about 2 minutes.
    3. 3
      Add the potato and cook about 5 minutes.
    4. 4
      Add the artichokes and broth, cover and cook 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
    5. 5
      Add salt, pepper and cream cheese.
    6. 6
      At this point you can pull out your immersion blender if you're lucky enough to have one. Puree until smooth.
    7. 7
      If you're like me, take the soup off the heat for a few minutes and transfer to a blender to puree (probably in batches) until smooth.
    8. 8
      You may want to strain the soup to remove the little stringy bits of artichokes -- especially if you have kids.
    9. 9
      Top with chives, maybe a dollop of sour cream, or even some mascarpone if you are living dangerously.

      Enjoy!
