Directions

Split leeks in half lengthwise so you can wash thoroughly, then cut in 1-inch lengths; discard tough green tops.
Or cut white part of green onions in 1-inch lengths.
Using metal blade, process leeks or green onions with on-off bursts until coarsely chopped.
Place in a 3-quart kettle.
Cut onion in chunks and process with on-off bursts until coarsely chopped.
Add to leeks along with butter and cook over low heat until onion is soft but not browned.
Peel potatoes, cut in chunks, and process, 1 at a time, with on-off bursts until coarsely chopped.
Add to onion mixture along with chicken broth.
Bring to a boil; then reduce heat, cover and simmer until potatoes are tender (about 20 minutes).
Still using metal blade, process 1/2 of the soup at a time until smooth.
Pour pureed soup into a bowl, stir in cream and milk, then season with salt and pepper.
If too thick, thin with additional milk.
Chill thoroughly.
Serve cold, sprinkled with chives or green onion tops.
