Cream of Fennel Soup (Fennel Vichyssoise)

Rating: 4.88 stars
A great soup. Healthy (despite the cream) and refreshing! For a South American flair, serve with popcorn. Throw it into your soup and like you would croutons. Serve hot or cold. The addition of finely diced fennel fronds dresses up the presentation.

Wonderful cold soup full of fresh Mediterranean vegetables! Quick and easy.


Rating: 4.55 stars
The finest of all cold soups--and the very best thing invented in the USA! This wonderful, smooth soup can be garnished with a very few finely chopped chives. The chef at the Algonquin (where the soup originated) now sprinkles a very little curry powder, and provided it is a VERY little this can be very pleasant. Enjoy.

Simple Sweet Potato Soup

Rating: 4.11 stars

This delicious soup has only 6 ingredients. It was given to me by my boyfriend's mom who adapted it from another recipe. It can be as thick or thin as you like, and I like it quite thick. To dress it up when serving, drizzle some cream on top and float a lime twist or slice of lime on top. Delicious hot or cold.
