I love potato soup and especially love how easy it is to prepare and how few ingredients it takes. I have also added ham or bacon to this recipe which makes it even better. If you have a little sour cream and chives, that makes the perfect complement!
6 Potatoes, peeled and diced into 1 inch cubes
1 Medium Onion, chopped
2 Cloves Garlic, minced
6 Cups Chicken Stock (I use Pacific Brand)
2 Cups Half & Half
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper
In large stock pot, heat oil over medium high heat, add onions and cook until translucent, about 5 minutes, add garlic and continue to cook two more minutes. Next add chicken stock and potatoes, turn heat to medium and cook until potatoes are very soft, about 30 minutes.
Puree mixture in blender or food processor until smooth, return to stock pot. Stir in half &half and season with salt and pepper to taste. Heat over low heat until ready to serve.
