Pureed Broccoli

45 mins (prep 45)

I adopted this recipe and recently tried it as a side dish to a chicken and dressing skillet. It was very simple to prepare, and I like the balance of the flavors of the leeks with the broccoli. I did change the potato content to 2 instead of 1, but this could be amended at your discretion. I think that this is a lower carb and more flavorful option instead of mashed potatoes, or just an excellent veggie side dish for a roast poultry or pork meal. The original poster said that this was one of their traditional Thanksgiving recipes, and I am considering it for my own holiday menus. The whipping cream could be adjusted to a lower fat option, if you wish.
