How to Make The Pretentious Vichyssoise

Step-by-Step

  1. Clean your leeks carefully, the outer leaves especially get full of sand. (I usually chop them and then place in a colander and rinse). Chop roughly.
  2. Melt butter in saute pan and place the leeks in, and cook on medium until tender, but not browned.
  3. Transfer to a soup pot and add potatoes and the stock. Cook until potatoes are done about 30 minutes.
  4. Carefully transfer to a blender or use an immersion blender to puree. Add cream, and adjust for seasoning.
