Easy, few ingredients, not too thick but more substance than a broth soup. Healthier than canned. Nothing fancy but satisfying and simple. All done in one pot too. I prefer organic stock which is lower in sodium, so adjust for that. very good with good italian garlic bread topped with good italian cheese.
- 3 large baking potatoes, chopped
- 1 vidalia onion, chopped
- 1 quart chicken stock
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1⁄3 cup heavy cream
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- salt and pepper
- peel and chop potatoes.
- peel and chop onion.
- place potatoes and onion in your soup pot and saute in butter and garlic for 5 minutes.
- add chicken stock and stir.
- bring to boil.
- simmer on low-med for 1/2 hour or till potatoes are tender.
- use potatoe masher to mash some but not all potatoes in soup
- stir in cream.
- simmer on low for 5 minutes.
- add seasonings to taste and serve.
This is a great basic potato soup. It has a very nice texture from being semi-mashed...makes it seem like it's more fattening than it is. I used fresh garlic instead of powder and added some celery salt for some extra flavor. This will be made again; thanx for posting!
