  1. 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  2. 1 cup chopped yellow onion
  3. 2 leeks, sliced 1/4-inch thick
  4. 3 cloves garlic, minced
  5. ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  6. 2 (32-ounce) containers vegetable broth
  7. 1 cup half-and-half
  8. 3 pounds new potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch chunks
  9. 1 tablespoon minced fresh dill
  10. 1 tablespoon minced fresh chives
  11. 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
  12. 1 tablespoon minced fresh tarragon
  13. 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  14. ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  15. ½ cup whole buttermilk
  16. 2 cups shredded extra-sharp white Cheddar cheese
  17. Garnish: sliced leek
  1. In a large Dutch oven, melt butter over medium heat. Add onion, leek, and garlic; cook until tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Add flour; cook, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes. Stir in broth and half-and-half.
  2. Add potatoes, and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat, and simmer until potatoes are tender and mixture has slightly thickened, about 20 minutes. Add dill, chives, parsley, tarragon, salt, and pepper, stirring to combine. Reduce heat 
to low.
  3. In the container of a blender, add soup, in batches, if necessary, and process until smooth. Return soup to pot, and stir in buttermilk. Add cheese, and cook, stirring constantly, until melted. Serve soup topped 
with sliced leek, if desired.
