      I made a half the recipe because I live by myself. I froze half before I put the cream in. This is so yummy and easy! I did use some of the green tops because I like the flavour so it did turn out greenish. Really delicious before I put the cream in, so I added minmal and low fat. It was great! Thanks alleycatb ;-) I will definitely make again.

      TO DIE FOR! This soup was SOOOOO good! I absolutly love vichyssoise but I usually just make it off the top of my head. From now on I will be using this recipe as my standard. A chilled soup is so refreshing and this is definatly one of the best you will ever have. The directions were perfect and the soup was unbelivable. I made it exactly as stated, leaving the potatoes to cook for about 25 minutes to insure tenderness. I used an immersion blender to mash it all together and let it cool in the fridge. Once chilled the flavours developed wonderfully and the texture was great. It was delicious and well worth the extra calories as a treat!
