DIRECTIONS

  • Heat oil in large pot over medium heat.
  • Add leeks and garlic, cook and stir for about 2 minutes.
  • Add the potato and cook about 5 minutes.
  • Add the artichokes and broth, cover and cook 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
  • Add salt, pepper and cream cheese.
  • At this point you can pull out your immersion blender if you're lucky enough to have one. Puree until smooth.
  • 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.
  • You may want to strain the soup to remove the little stringy bits of artichokes -- especially if you have kids.
  • Top with chives, maybe a dollop of sour cream, or even some mascarpone if you are living dangerously.
  • Enjoy!
