Prep Time:

Cook Time:

45 minutes

Serves:

Based on the traditional French Vichyssoise Soup we added more flavor and excitement with Prosecco and goat cheese.  This dish is perfect for hot summer evenings when you want something cool yet filling.

Foodie Byte: If you have children sharing your table dish their soup prior to adding the Prosecco!

Preparation

  1. Sauté leeks and onion in olive oil and butter for 10-15 minutes or until leeks and onions are translucent and tender.
  2. Add potatoes, thyme, stock, salt and pepper.
  3. Bring to a boil and reduce heat so soup just simmers for 30 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
  4. Remove from heat, add the goat cheese and stir until cheese is incorporated and let cool.
  5. Blend with immersion blender.
  6. Chill soup for 24 hours.
  7. Add the Prosecco and stir until incorporated.
