Ingredients

Preparation

  1. In a saucepan, soften the leek in the butter. Add the potatoes, zucchini, and water. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Bring to a boil. Cover and simmer over medium heat for 15 minutes or until the potatoes are very tender.
  3. In a blender, purée the soup until smooth. Add the cream and adjust the seasoning.
  4. Let cool and refrigerate until completely chilled, about 4 hours.
  5. Just before serving, garnish each bowl with a zucchini flower. Serve with toasted bread drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with sea salt.
