  1. Melt butter in a large saucepan. Add leeks; cover and cook over medium-low heat, stirring often, until tender, about 10 minutes.

  2. Add broth, potatoes, salt and pepper and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer until potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes.

  3. Mash in pot with a potato masher until desired consistency. (If serving cold, you may want to puree until smooth in a blender or in pot using an immersion blender).

  4. Serve topped with Greek yogurt, freshly ground black pepper and chives, if desired.
