  • MAKE-AHEAD
  1. 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  2. 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  3. 2 medium leeks, white and tender green parts only, finely chopped
  4. 1 1/2 pounds broccoli, stems peeled and sliced 1/2 inch thick, florets cut into 1-inch pieces
  5. 3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  6. 5 cups chicken stock or canned low-sodium broth
  7. Salt and freshly ground white pepper
  8. 1/2 cup sour cream
  9. Finely grated zest of 1 lemon
  10. 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  11. 1/4 cup snipped chives
  12. 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  1. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter in the olive oil. Add the leeks and cook over moderately high heat, stirring, until softened, about 3 minutes. Stir in the broccoli, garlic and stock, season with salt and white pepper and bring to a boil. Cover partially and simmer until the broccoli is tender, 20 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, stir the sour cream with the lemon zest, lemon juice, chives and Parmesan. Season with salt and white pepper.
  3. Transfer the soup to a blender and puree in batches until smooth. Stir in half of the lemon-chive cream. Ladle the soup into shallow bowls and serve the remaining lemon-chive cream on the side.
