Low-Fat High-Chile Vichyssoise

In Chili & Soup by Mark MaskerLeave a Comment

Of course, this version of the famous soup will be different from the heavily laden butter and cream recipes of the past. For one, it will have a lot more heat for a cold soup because we’ve replaced the fat with chile juice. This recipe requires advance preparation.

Instructions
  1. In a large soup pot, heat the olive oil and saute the leeks and onions until soft, about 10 minutes. Add the stock, basil, and potatoes, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until the potatoes are tender, about 20 minutes.
  2. Remove from the heat and puree in batches in a blender or food processor until the mixture is a very smooth, thin paste. Transfer to a bowl and add the evaporated skim milk, non-fat sour cream, skimmed milk, and white pepper. Mix well, add the equivalent of 1/2 of a 1/2-inch superhot chile cube and taste for heat level, adding more if needed. Cover and refrigerate for at least 5 hours. Serve in cold bowls garnished with minced chives and a sprinkling of red chile powder.
