You may not consider yourself Julia Child's equal in the kitchen, but, take heart. Few of us have graduated from the rigors of Condon Bleu culinary training. And, it's unlikely Mom has such lofty expectations. You can be assured that she will appreciate your efforts to prepare a special meal in her honor.
To really go all out for Mom on her special day, we borrow from the French chefs who created outstanding dishes that have become culinary standards. While Vichysoise, the familiar French potato soup, is served chilled, our flavorful rendition contains sweet peas in place of the potatoes and arrives at the table gently warmed. And, voila! Hot Pea Vichysoise is born! Taking further liberties, we garnish the green jewel with a dollop of Tofu Sour Cream.
