Directions

  1. Melt butter in a large pot over medium-high heat. Cook and stir leeks in the melted butter until tender, 5 to 7 minutes.
  2. Stir potatoes and chicken broth into the leeks and bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium-low, cover the pot, and simmer until potatoes are tender, about 12 minutes.
  3. Stir peas and tarragon into the soup; simmer until peas are tender, about 5 minutes.
  4. Pour the soup into a blender, filling the pitcher no more than half full.
  5. Hold down the lid of the blender with a towel and carefully start the blender, using a few quick pulses to get the soup moving before leaving it on to puree. Puree in batches until smooth and pour into a clean pot. Alternately, you can use a stick blender and puree the soup in the pot.
  6. Pour milk into the pureed soup and bring to a simmer over medium heat until heated through. Season with salt and black pepper.

Fabulous recipe with excellent instructions!!

I absolutely loved the taste. The peas gave it a nice, sweet quality. But in the eyes of my 5 year old, it was "green stuff," so she really struggled to even touch it. It's not the most visually pleasing, but it tastes great!

My 3 year old ate it. My husband said it was missing ham hock and asked if it was split pea soup. I thought it was okay. Pretty decent recipe could use some tweaking but I doubt I will be making it again. I made it only to get rid of some leeks I had in the fridge and used fresh peas from my garden instead of frozen. Didn't have tarragon so substituted oregano instead.
