    FlemishMinx's Note:

    This soup is to artichokes what vichysoisse is to leeks! Delicious as a starter (particularly for an Italian meal) or lunch on a warm day. If you are stumped by the metrics, don't forget you can use the handy converter provided by 'Zaar (to be found just after the quantity). Preparation time DOES NOT include 3-4 hour chilling time.

      This was very good, a great summer soup. Now I am asked to make it for every dinner party I have. I didn't have any whole hearts, so I just used paste and it worked fine.

      I made this yesterday and had some for lunch today. The extra time for letting the soup chill also allows the flavors to meld wonderfully. I did chop up a bit of the artichoke & float it on top of the soup rather than garnishing with dried tomatoes. Other than that, I followed instructions exactly and was rewarded with a creamy, refreshing soup. This time I used regular sour cream, but next time I will go back to my usual low-fat sour cream. And believe me, there WILL be a next time. Another winner, Minx!

      A wonderful soup in this hot weather--I upped the garlic amount just a bit and added some white pepper. Thank you, Flemish Minx!
