For the classic cold version, known as vichyssoise just refrigerate the soup until well chilled, then garnish with snipped chives.

1 1/2 pounds baking potatoes, peeled and chopped
2 leeks, pale green and white parts only, cleaned and chopped
4 cups fat-free, reduced-sodium chicken broth
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
3/4 cup half-and-half
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper

Combine the potatoes, leeks, broth, and thyme in a large saucepan. Cover and bring to
a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat and simmer until the potatoes are tender,
about 20 minutes.
Puree the soup in a food processor or blender, in batches if necessary. Return the soup to the pan, stir in the half-and-half, salt, and pepper, and cook
