An apple Vichyssoise to bring the temperatures down...

Today's recipe today, sent by Cesar Benavides, is the first contribution of our blog followers': a cold soup to cool the temperatures which are still above the 30ºC outside...
Among the many recipes Vichyssoise this is a great summer suggestion replacing the potatoes by the apples which turns this soup lighter for a summer evening and the rest of the bikini operation !

You will need:
4 large leeks, 
3 apples (you can use Golden or starking, for instance)
75 ml of extra virgin oil
200 ml of cream
700 ml chicken stock (see recipe in previous post)
Salt and pepper

Start by washing the leek, and slice white part. Sauté a little avoiding it to get colour and add the apples previously peeled and diced. Add the chicken stock and let it boil for about 15 minutes. Grind it, add the cream, let it boil again for about 5 minutes, and correct the seasoning with salt & pepper. Remove, let cool reserve it in the fridge.
Serve the soup very cold, with freshly ground black pepper. (Alternatively you can also add a bit of chopped chives).
