My friend Liz made the best potato soup in the world this past weekend. She posted her recipe and inspired me to do the same, so here you go!
- 4 cups broth (chicken or vegetable)
- 4 medium sized all purpose potatoes
- 3 fresh leeks
- 3 yellow onions
- 1/2 cup whipping/ heavy cream
- parsley and or chervil to taste
Bring broth to simmering point. Peel potatoes and cut into eigths. Add potatoes, onion and leeks to broth. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Mash potatoes into the broth using a knife or a potato masher to form smaller pieces of potato. Add chervil, parsley, and cream. Simmer for five more minutes.
Toppings: bacon, cheese, scallions, sour cream
It is so easy, and yet so good!
