Directions

  1. Cut off top 1/4 inch of each garlic head. Place in a small, shallow baking dish. Drizzle olive oil over. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) until golden, about 1 hour. Cool slightly. Press individual garlic cloves between thumb and finger to release. Chop garlic.
  2. Melt butter or margarine in heavy large saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic, leeks, and onion; saute until onion is translucent, about 8 minutes. Add flour and cook 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in hot broth and sherry. Simmer 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Cool slightly.
  3. Puree soup in batches in a blender or food processor.
  4. Return soup to saucepan, and add cream. Simmer until thickened, about 10 minutes. Add lemon juice to taste. Season with salt and white pepper. Ladle into bowls. Garnish with chives.

I had first tried this soup at the Vermont Culinary School restaurant a few years ago in Burlington and have since been hunting high and low looking for this recipe. I left out the leeks and just sauteed sliced Spanish white onions instead and it gave it a sweeter taste. I did not use whipped cream but just heavy table cream instead and it came out fine. This is great winter soup and the lemon wedge and croutons are a perfect addition. Also, a few sprinkles of grated Asiago or parmasan cheese on top is also tasty toppings. Goes well with a very dry, white wine.

A good soup, but way too many leeks. I made a 2nd time and used 1 large leek as opposed to 4. Came out much better. I also added some oven roasted red potatoes with rosemary and garlic to the recipe. Came out excellent. Overall this is a solid recipe that gives you a great base to work with.

This soup was great...the second day. Next time I make this soup, I'll definitely finish the soup and serve it the next day. The flavor was so much better the second day. I also cut the leeks down to one but left the rest of the recipe the same. Give yourself lots of time with this soup. It takes a while to make. A perfect soup to prepare a day ahead.
