Directions

Cut up the pepper and leek and set aside.

Pour the olive oil in a large pot and heat it. When hot, add the leek and poblano peppers until they soften.

Add the zucchini. Stir occasionally until the zucchini just starts to tenderize.

When it begins to soften, pour in the chicken broth and simmer until all the ingredients are soft.

Pour a few cups at a time into a blender and blend until smooth. Process all of the zucchini. You may need another bowl to pour the processed soup into while you are making it.

Chop the cilantro and pour it over the soup back in the original large pot.

Add 2 cups creme fraiche and stir it in to finish.
