  • 1 medium leek washed and thinly sliced. Discard only the very toughest top parts of the leek.

  • 2 scallions minced
  • 1 ½ teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 590 milliliters low-fat chicken broth or vegetable broth, preferably homemade
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Sauté the minced scallions in the olive oil in a heavy bottomed pan large enough to hold all your ingredients, until translucent.
  • Add the sliced leek and sauté for an additional three minutes on low.
  • Add the broth and cubed potatoes, cover, and simmer on low until the potatoes are just tender.
  • Add salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste, and serve
