Garlicky Leek and Artichoke Soup

From Vegetarian Times - March 2010. A light artichoke soup gets a blast of flavor from a swirl of basil pesto. If the soup seems too thick when blended, simply add a little more water or broth to the mixture until desired consistency is achieved.

  • Heat oil in large saucepan over medium heat. Add leeks and garlic, and saute 5 minutes or until leeks are softened and translucent. Add broth, artichokes, potatoes, thyme, and 2 cups water; cover, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; season with salt and pepper, if desired; and simmer, partially covered, 20-25 minutes, or until potatoes and garlic are very tender.
  • Remove thyme sprigs and strip remaining thyme leaves into soup pot. Transfer soup to blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Return to pot and stir in lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper, if desired. Ladle soup into bowls and garnish each serving with 1 tablespoons prepared pesto.
