  • 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.

  • Stir peas and tarragon into the soup; simmer until peas are tender, about 5 minutes.

  • Pour the soup into a blender, filling the pitcher no more than half full.

  • 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.

  • Pour milk into the pureed soup and bring to a simmer over medium heat until heated through. Season with salt and black pepper.

Way to many potatos. I'd put in half as much at most.

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.
