Progresso Broth

Ingredients

  • 3 lb potatoes (about 8 medium), peeled and cut into pieces
  • 2 cups sliced leek with some of green top (about 1 medium)
  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup Progresso™ chicken broth (from 32-oz carton)
  • 1/4 cup whipping (heavy) cream
  • 1 tablespoon butter or margarine
  • Additional whipping (heavy) cream, heated, if desired
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives

Steps

  • 1
    In 3-quart saucepan, place potatoes, leek, garlic, salt and broth. Cover and heat to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer covered 20 to 25 minutes or until tender (do not drain). Mash potato mixture with potato masher or electric mixer on low speed.

    In 1-quart saucepan, heat 1/4 cup whipping cream and the butter over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until butter is melted. Add cream mixture to potato mixture; continue mashing until potatoes are light and fluffy. Add additional heated whipping cream for desired consistency. Stir in chives.

  • Don’t have whipping cream? Milk works just fine in this recipe, and it trims some of the calories, too.
  • Leeks are usually grown in sand, which can become embedded in the tight rings. So separate the slices into rings and rinse well before cooking.
  • Make the potatoes ahead of time and put them in your slow cooker on the Low heat setting to keep warm for up to 2 hours.
