Recipe by LifeIsGood
READY IN: 50mins




  • In a medium-to-large-sized soup pot, melt butter over medium heat. Add onion, salt and pepper. Cook, stirring, until the onions are translucent but not browned. Add potatoes, 2 cups of the water and rosemary. Bring to boiling, then reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for 20 minutes or until the potatoes are tender and can be pierced with a fork. Remove from heat.
  • Mash the potatoes with a potato masher until no lumps remain. (You could also use an immersion blender or a regular blender. This will make the soup smoother.) Add remaining 2 cups of water. Bring to boiling, then reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, about 10 minutes or until thickened and to your desired consistency, stirring frequently.
  • Crispy Carrots:
  • In a 10 inch skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Wait until the oil gets hot. Add the carrot ribbons, a few at a time, to the hot oil. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes or until crisp. Transfer to a cooling rack or paper towels and immediately sprinkle with the kosher salt.
  • Spoon soup into serving bowls and top with the crispy carrots and sprinkle with some black pepper.
