(Vichyssoise) Leek and Potato Soup

Jo Zimny


Vichyssoise or Leek and Potato Soup is one of my all time favourites. This particular recipe uses no milk. It is creamy and delicious. I had a bowl this morning and squeezed a little lemon juice in mine, it gave the soup another layer of flavour. I love this recipe.

Sauteed or steamed, I love cabbage. It's a great source of vitamins B and C and potassium. Cabbage is an unsung hero in my mind and gets a bad rap....
