Vichyssoise is traditionally served cold, however I will be serving mine hot (also accepted) as I gaze at the snow-covered landscape outside the kitchen window :- )

Difficulty Level: Facile

What you need:
  • 2 cups leeks, trimmed and sliced
  • 1 onion, chopped fine
  • 3  large potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 3 cups vegetable stock

  • 2 tbsp. vegan margarine
  • 1/2 tsp. dried thyme
  • 1/2 tsp. dried marjoram
  • 1/2 tsp. dried rosemary
  • sea salt, pepper, to taste
What to do:
  1. Heat margarine in large stockpot over medium heat. Add leeks and onions and cook for 5-7 minutes. 
  2. Add potatoes, herbs, salt, pepper and vegetable stock and bring to a boil. Let simmer for 20 minutes.
  3. Transfer soup to a blender, add rice milk and blend until smooth. Adjust seasoning to taste.

  4. I have bought the Health Valley can of potato leek soup and it tastes so great. So apparently I love the taste of potatoes and leeks together.

    On my Google page, it has my Twitter page and that has a collection of the 11 best vegan dishes that this one group could find.

    Also the doctor of public health at Moores Cancer Center (also professor of medicine at U of CA) said that enough vitamin D (lifeguard levels) will eradicate breast cancer. Also my blog post (also on Twitter page) on it has Dr Oz and Christaine Northrup M.D. talking about vitamin D preventing breast cancer.
