Vichysose is a thick soup made mainly of leeks and potatoes. We changed the traditional recipe and made a vichysose made of artichoke and crispy olives. If you like this vegetable, you will like this variant and get a lighter vichysose.

When we have the best artichoke in our garden, this vichysos recipe is a special recommendation, and it is usually a cold dish. I hope that in the next few days, the temperature will record that spring is getting later and later, which will be a very delicious appetizer On the contrary, we can also enjoy the warm soup.

In order to enhance the taste of vichysois, we started making it the day before yesterday, and let it stay in the refrigerator overnight. We also use it to make dehydrated black olives, which provide a stronger taste and a crisper texture when they lose moisture.

Olives must be placed on a small baking tray covered with a baking cloth and then dried at about 50-60 degrees Celsius. The time depends on the oven and may take several hours. Then you can put them in a glass jar with a lid.

Take off the first leaf of the artichoke, slice the stem, put enough water, put the artichoke in the pot (including the stem), and then put them together until they are soft. Then drain the artichoke and remove the remaining hard parts from the leaves. Keep the broth.

Put a little extra virgin olive oil in another pan and cut the leeks into small pieces, leaving only the white part you peeled off and slicing. Cook slowly until it begins to discolor and caramel. Then add artichokes and broth, season with salt, crush until a smooth cream is formed, then boil and turn off.

Add freshly ground milk and black pepper, mix well, test if you need to grind with salt or pepper, or dilute with more broth. Let it cool, then put it in the refrigerator until the next day.

Before serving, if you want a more creamy soup, add a little cream.

Pour in the artichoke juice, cut the crispy olives into small pieces, put a teaspoon on each dish, season with olive oil line, and finally decorate with leaves and sage flowers, which will also bring you rich flavor. Enjoy yourself!
