1. What in the world made it that color?

When I make it, it is white with maybe a little green tinge.

And I love, love, love it cold (vichyssoises).

2. Food coloring!

Just kidding. I think I use more of the green part of the leeks than you do.

3. Do you like it cold as well?

This is one of my favorite dishes and I was surprised how easy it was to make.

Great site, btw. I do, however, wish you would post the recipes here, then add a link.

Just my personal preference. My connection is often very slow and I won't open a link if I don't have to.

4. I was wondering that, as well. It's really unappealing

My own recipe is Julia Child's recipe of potato, leek, water or stock, and black pepper, either heavy cream or butter to finish. It's the easiest thing in the world, good hot or cold.

It's the color of the potatoes you used with an occasional pale green fleck of pureed leek.

5. I'm having a cup of it right now

And it's pretty green. I thought maybe I added too much saturation in Photoshop, but it's fairly close. The photo makes it look a little more yellow that it actually is. But like I said, I added a lot of the green part of the leeks.

I'll have to try it cold although it's pretty thick when it's cold.

8. You may want to thin it with more broth if you try it cold.

Some chives or snipped scallions on top make it even better.

Enjoy!

6. Did you eat it hot or cold. I love cold vichyssoise.

7. Heated it up in the microwave

But I'll try it cold tomorrow.

9. I love leek & potato soup. I make it about the same, simple.

I've had it as is off the stove, a hot soup. Then reheated the next day and blended like this with some sour cream.
