DIRECTIONS

  • In a large saucepan, saute the chopped onion in olive oil until translucent; then add the cubed potatoes and mix together.
  • Add the stock and milk, simmering until the potatoes are nearly tender.
  • When potatoes are soft,add the lovage and liquidise the soup, adding further stock or milk if a thinner consistency is required.
  • Check the seasoning and add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Return to the saucepan and heat through gently - do NOT allow the soup to boil.
  • Serve hot and garnish with the remaining lovage and crusty bread and butter or bread rolls.
  • This travels very well in a thermos flask for a warming picnic soup.
