Sweet Potato Vichyssoise

Sweet Potato Vichyssoise created by Parsley

I got this recipe from a cookbook I can't recall the name of, but since I love vichyssoise, I tried this recipe, and it is fabulous. I make it when the weather turns warm and serve it cold.

    I made substantial changes to this recipe, so its probably not fair to review it, but the bottom line is you can cut most of the fat out and still end up with a good soup. The basic leek/sweet potato combo is good, so the success of the soup is not dependant on the butter and cream. I substituted 2 T olive oil for the 6 T of butter and evaporated 2% milk for the cream. I used 3/4 c. maderia instead of white wine.

    I made this as posted for a family get together and it went over very well. It is so easy to make & has such nice flavor. I think adding flour to thicken it would be beneficial, and will try that the next time I make it. Thanks for a delicious recipe!

    Yup. This really is fabulous. I think it's just as fabulous as a hot soup, too. I used yams instead of sweet potatoes. I also added about 1/4 cup of flour just to thicken it up a bit more; just my personal preference. Loved the subtle citrus flavor from the lime. Thanx for sharing this; I'll be making this again.
