Ingredients

2 tbsp (30 mL) butter
2 leeks, white and light green part only or 
onions, chopped
2 celery stalks, chopped
2 carrots, chopped
A pinch of ground nutmeg
3 medium potatoes, peeled and diced (about 3 cups/750 mL)
3 cups (750 mL) chicken broth or 
vegetable stock
1 pkg (10 oz/300 g) fresh spinach, trimmed

Brie Croutons (optional):
6 to 8 slices baguette
2 oz (60 g) Canadian Brie, cut into thin slices

Preparation

In large pot, melt butter over medium heat; cook leeks, celery, carrots and nutmeg, stirring, for about 10 min or until soft. Stir in potatoes and stock; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about 25 min or until potatoes are tender. Stir in spinach just until wilted.

Transfer to blender in batches and puree until smooth. Return to pot and stir in cream. Heat over low heat just until steaming. Stir in chives and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Brie Croutons:
Toast baguette slices lightly under broiler. Top each slice with a piece of Brie; return to broiler for about 2 min or until cheese is melted and bubbling. Ladle hot soup into bowls and top with Brie Crouton.

Tips

For the Adventurous
For a zippier flavour, add 1 cup (250 mL) chopped watercress or arugula with spinach.

Use Canadian blue cheese instead of Brie on croutons.
