Potato-Leek Soup (Vichyssoise)Served hot and left chunky, potato-leek soup is a rustic midwinter dinner. Try swapping in carrots, broccoli, spinach, or parsnips for some of the potatoes, and you can absolutely serve the soup hot, if you prefer.
Provençal Tomato SoupFresh goat cheese, crumbled on top, adds a surprising tangy creaminess and elevates this simple soup into something that is definitely worthy of a dinner party. If you prefer, you can sprinkle the soup with feta or grated Parmigiano-Reggiano instead.
