This was a great starting point. (Recipes exist to get ideas not to follow.) I like vichyssoise but am always a bit disappointed in the blandness. I added a clove of garlic and half cup of finely chopped fresh herbs (parsley lovage oregano majoram savory thyme basil and a lot of chives). I garnished with more chives and fresh cracked pepper.
ok. I cheated and sampled the leek potato mixture as it was cooling. Awesome. But then I added the dairy - I used nonfat half and half - and suddenly this delicious soup became diluted more fattening and less enticing. It was good. But prior it was exquisite. So next time I'm adding the half and half a quarter cup at a time. Also bacon bits and chives on top and with less cream a dollup of sour cream. Just like in baked potatoes! And who knows may even serve warm instead of chilled. I'm out of control!
Oh my! Simply sumptuous! I noted that some other reviewers fiddled with the recipe by using lowfat this and nonfat that or reduced fat other. DON'T! Keep this recipe exactly how it's written! Otherwise it's just foreplay without sex! (Nice but never as fulfilling!) Whilst I appreciate the idea of adding a scintilla of curry on top I personally found it destructive to this wonderful dish. Definitely use fresh chives though along with proper full fat cream and delicious rich chicken stock. I did add the lightest dusting of fresh cracked black pepper. Chilled to perfection it was a symphony of flavour! Lovely. Absolutely Lovely!
My first taste of Vichyssoise - excellent! Easy straightforward recipe. Enjoyed it this warm summer afternoon with a fruit compote fried bread fingers and chilled Pinot Blanc in the cool shade in my garden. Even my gourmet Belgian Shepherd loved it! Don't miss trying this one!
Mmmm delicious. It is basicly a cold leek&potato soup but the genious of it is the idea of serving it cold. I would never have thought of that. Very nice smooth and pleasing in the summer heat. Must serve with a big chunk of bread for dipping.
I made this soup for my family tonight. It is VERY good!!! My husband said he would prefer it hot though. We may try it again this fall/winter that way. It is a very strong rich soup. We ate it with a flatbread ( Also found on AllRecipes:-)
