Easy Leek and Potato Soup

Developed January 30, 2012.
1/4 c low-fat soft margarine
1 lb frozen chopped leeks, thawed (Trader Joes™)
1 c white onion, coarsely chopped
30-oz bag frozen hash browns (raw shredded potato only), thawed
salt and pepper
hot water
1 c cream and/or milk
2 to 3 T lemon juice
Cook leek and onion in margarine until soft and lightly colored. Stir in the shredded potato, salt, and pepper. Add hot water to cover by an inch (2.5 cm). Stir thoroughly and bring to a fast simmer. Cover and cook until the potatoes have softened and broken up, about 15 minutes. Homogenize with an immersion blender. Stir in dairy, the lemon juice, and salt and pepper to taste. Serves 6 to 8.
