  • 4 cups of chicken broth or stock (vegetable broth is ok too)
  • 3 leeks, cleaned and chopped
  • 5-6 medium yukon gold potatoes, peeled and cubed. (i prefer the yukons because they have a buttery texture/taste, cook faster, and have the best texture for this recipe.)
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 cup milk or half/half (whatever you have on hand works)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • salt/pepper
