Steps to follow to make this recipe: 1
First, to make this cold vichyssoise recipe, peel the potato and break it into pieces. Then peel the onion and leek and cut them into julienne strips.
Put a saucepan on the fire and add the butter, sauté the onion without it becoming colored, add the leek and sauté everything together.
Add the potato chips, turn around and add the hot chicken stock. Let it cook everything about 30 minutes.
If you are going to use the quail eggs, cook them and let them cool down.
After the cooking time of the vegetables, crush the vichyssoise soup with the mixer until a cream of leeks and fine potatoes remains, and let it cool in the fridge.
Once the vichyssoise is cold add evaporated milk or liquid cream, and add salt and pepper.
Place the cooked and peeled eggs in the center of the bowls where you are going to serve the cold cream of leeks.
Take the cold vichyssoise around the egg. Finally, season the cream of leeks with extra virgin olive oil.
Trick: If you have the vichyssoise too thick you can add a little more evaporated milk or cream.
Although this is a cream that is usually taken cold, I have to say that I also like it very hot and I usually do it in winter too.
