Ingredients

Directions

1. Remove and discard green, leafy portion of leeks; thinly slice white and light green portions. In a large saucepan or Dutch oven, heat olive oil over medium-low heat. Cook leeks and garlic until softened, about 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.

2. Add broth, tomatoes and carrots; bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer for 5 minutes.

3. Stir in asparagus, peas and thyme; cover and simmer for 4 to 5 minutes or until asparagus is tender.

4. Stir in parsley, lemon juice, salt and pepper.

Quick Tip: To clean leeks effectively, trim them, then slit them lengthwise about a third of the way through. You can then open the leaves a little and wash away any stubborn dirt from between the layers under cold running water.
