Scape Vichyssoise

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by CountryLady

A classic soup (served hot or cold) for garlic lovers. If scapes are not available at a specialty shop or farmer's market, use 1/4 cup sliced garlic. If you like spicy soups, add a few drops of chili oil.

Very Very good, I let the scape brown a little that gave the soup a nice roasted taste, and i used superior touch "Better Than Bouillon", which worked out great and i did not have to add salt. It gave the soup a wonderful richness. I will have to take a trip to the farm and get some more scape!!
