Potato and leek soup puréed with milk.
This recipe owes its name to the French city of Vichy, but its origin is in the United States. Nowadays, the term «vichyssoise» can stand for almost any soup served cold.

This recipe makes MUCH more than 3 servings, unless one considers 2 cups a serving. It is very tasty, hot or chilled.
