1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil2 medium leek, trimmed, washed and finely chopped2 clove garlic, minced½ lb new potato, scrubbed and diced2 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth or vegetable broth1 lb fresh asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1/2-inch pieces⅔ cup snow pea or sugar snap pea, stemmed and cut into 1/2-inch dice3 Tbsp chopped fresh chive, divided2 Tbsp chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley1 Tbsp chopped fresh dill2 tsp chopped fresh chervil (see Ingredient note) or flat-leaf parsley, plus sprigs for garnish2 cup 1% milk1 Tbsp lemon juice¼ tsp salt, or to taste freshly ground pepper to taste⅓ cup low-fat plain yogurt for garnish


  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-low heat. Add leeks and cook, stirring often, until softened but not browned, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook, stirring, for 1 minute.
  2. Add potatoes and broth; bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Cover and reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are tender, 10 to 15 minutes.
  3. Increase heat to medium-high and stir in asparagus and peas; simmer, covered, stirring 2 or 3 times, until just tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in 1 tablespoon chives, parsley, dill and chopped chervil (or parsley). Transfer the soup to a blender and blend until smooth. (Use caution when pureeing hot liquids.)
  4. Return the soup to the pan. Add milk and bring to just below a simmer, stirring, over medium heat. Stir in lemon juice, salt and pepper. Ladle into soup bowls. Garnish each serving with a dollop of yogurt, a sprinkling of the remaining chopped chives and a sprig of chervil (or parsley).

Ingredient Note: Chervil (from the Greek for "herb of rejoicing") has a mild flavor between those of parsley and anise. It doesn't dry well, so is best used fresh.
