Serves: 6-8

2 lbs Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and cut into 3/4-inch chunks
4 Leeks, white and light green parts, cleaned
1/4 cup Olive Oil
3 cups Arugula, lightly packed
6-7 cups Chicken stock
Salt and pepper
1/2 cup Dry white wine
3/4 cup Heavy cream
8 oz Crème fraîche or Sour Cream
1/4 cup Freshly grated Parmesan

Step by Step Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Combine the potatoes and leeks on a sheet pan in a single layer. Add the olive oil, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper and toss to coat the vegetables evenly. Roast for 40 to 45 minutes, turning them with a spatula a few times during cooking, until very tender. Add the arugula and toss to combine. Roast for 4 to 5 more minutes, until the arugula is wilted. Remove the pan from the oven and place over 2 burners. Stir in the wine and 1 cup of the chicken stock and cook over low heat, scraping up any crispy roasted bits sticking to the pan.
  3. In batches, transfer the roasted vegetables to a food processor fitted with the steel blade, adding the pan liquid and about 5 cups of the chicken stock to make a puree. Pour the puree into a large pot or Dutch oven. Continue to puree the vegetables in batches until they're all done and combined in the large pot. Add enough of the remaining 1 to 2 cups of stock to make a thick soup. Add the cream, creme fraiche, 2 teaspoons salt, and 1 teaspoon pepper and check the seasonings.
  4. When ready to serve, reheat the soup gently and whisk in 2 tablespoons white wine and 1/4 cup of Parmesan. Serve hot with an extra grating of Parmesan and crispy shallots, if using.
