French Soup Vichyssoise

French Soup Vichyssoise

Ingredients

  • for toasts

Tender, silky, with rich flavor – it’s all about Vichyssoise – French leek creamy soup. Today we are going to describe the recipe first, and then give you some recommendations as to how better to serve it. By the way, it is traditionally served cold, but we believe that while hot it is also exceptionally good.

Благодарю за вдохновляющий рецепт! Суп получился очень вкусным)))
После пятиминутной обжарки лука добавила в него немного белого сухого вина и потушила еще 3 минутки (это придало на мой взгляд изысканности и легкие ароматные нотки в этот французский суп)… Не было сегодня настроения совсем готовить, а увидела ваш рецепт и вуаля…. вкусно, красиво и сытная семья)))) Еще раз спасибо за вашу работу!

Надежда, добрый вечер!
Очень рада, что вам понравился рецепт) Вино, безусловно, этому блюду пойдет только на пользу)
