    Perfect Pixie's Note:

    We had this once every two weeks in New Zealand. It is really nice. Scene as we were kids and loved it, I'm sure yours will to. Mum calls it Vichyssoise, but we prefer the name I gave it, so much easier

      This soup was good, but had too much milk for my taste. Next time I will only put one cup of milk or cream in. I only pureed half of it in the blender so that it would have some pieces in it; I added a cup of shredded cheese (Asiago), too, for extra flavor.

      I also used store bought chicken broth.

      Excellent! I added three mini cauliflowers because I had some left from my veg box and I also added a splash of sherry at the end. A simple but hearty soup which went down very well with my family. Thanks Pixie!
