3 cup  low sodium chicken broth
1 cup  whole milk
0 1/4 tsp  black pepper
1 each  large hard-boiled eggs
0 1/4 cup  fresh chives

Directions
  1. Cut off and discard stem end and green top from leek and remove outer layer. Slice leek in half lengthwise and run each half under cold running water, separating layers to fully clean. Chop into large pieces.

  4. Using slotted spoon, transfer leek and chard to blender or food processor. Add 1/2 cup cooking liquid and purée until smooth. Transfer puréed vegetable back into pot. Add milk and pepper, stir constantly. Cook 3 to 4 minutes, being careful not to scald milk.
