Vichyssoise

Tasty and easy solution to the heat wave stricken city life.. Very popular and recommended.

For 4-6 people:

  • 2 medium size leeks (or one large), chopped
  • 1 small onion, chopped,
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter,
  • 2 potatoes, not large, peeled and sliced,
  • 2 ½ cups (or ½ litre) of chicken stock, can be made with a little Knorr cube if your home made supply are short
  • Salt, pepper
  • Some ( a cup?) of double cream (I use whipping cream, or, in despair, I did also use sour cream and got away with it)
  • To garnish you can use chopped chives, or any other green stuff, also a pinch of curry powder to tease the taste buds
  1. Gently sweat the onion and leeks in butter, without browning them, for some 5-8 minutes.
  2. Add potatoes and stock, bring to boil, and simmer for some 20 minutes.
  3. Blend until quite smooth and leave to cool down
  4. Before serving fold in the cream, and dress up with greenery and hot curry (a trace of a fragrance only!)
