Cook's Notes

Use a blender, not a food processor, to puree this soup, or it will become gummy.

    Don't waster your time on this soup. Big disappointment.

    Although this soup was okay, it was not excellent. It both looks and sounds better than it actually is; I greatly prefer normal Vichyssoise, or Vichyssoise made with Zucchini.

    This recipe was really disappointing. No real carrot flavor carried through, which I was hoping for at least a hint of. And the color was sort of beige/flesh and rather unappetizing. I will stick with the traditional version next time...

    This recipe was really disappointing...almost no carrot flavor carried over into the soup, which was what I was hoping for a hint of. And the color was not nearly as bright as I had hoped for, it looked sort of beige and unappetizing. I will stick with the classic version next time.

    It will freeze fine. Just don't defrost in the microwave--leave the frozen container in the fridge overnite to defrost.
