Kraft Kitchens Tips

Special Extra
Garnish with filled soup bowl with a small dollop of BREAKSTONE'S or KNUDSEN Sour Cream and additional leeks.
Keeping it Safe
When pureeing the soup, be sure to add no more than 2 cups soup to the blender at a time. This will prevent the soup from overflowing over the top of the blender as it is blended.
How to Clean the Leeks
Remove the darkest green leaves from the tops of the leeks and any root strings from the bases of the leeks. Cut the leeks lengthwise in half, then hold them under cold running water to remove any dirt, occasionally pulling leaves apart to remove dirt between the leaves. Use only the white and light green leaves for cooking.
