Silky-Smooth Potato Soup Recipe

    Ingredients:

    • 4 large potatoes, peeled and diced
    • 1 large onion, finely chopped
    • 3 cloves garlic, minced
    • 4 cups vegetable or chicken broth
    • 1 cup whole milk
    • 1/2 cup heavy cream
    • 2 tablespoons butter
    • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    • Salt and pepper to taste
    • Chives or green onions, chopped (for garnish)

    Instructions:

    Prepare the Potatoes:

    Peel and dice the potatoes into small, uniform pieces. This ensures even cooking and a smoother texture.

    Saute Onions and Garlic:

    In a large pot, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the chopped onions and minced garlic. Saute until the onions are translucent and fragrant.

    Make Roux:

    Sprinkle the flour over the sauteed onions and garlic. Stir continuously to create a roux. Cook for 2-3 minutes to remove the raw taste of the flour.

    Add Potatoes:

    Add the diced potatoes to the pot and stir to coat them in the roux mixture.

    Pour in Broth:

    Gradually pour in the vegetable or chicken broth while stirring to prevent lumps. Bring the mixture to a gentle boil.

    Simmer:

    Reduce the heat to low, cover the pot, and let it simmer for about 15-20 minutes or until the potatoes are tender.

    Blend:

    Using an immersion blender or transferring the mixture to a blender in batches, blend the soup until smooth and creamy.

    Add Milk and Cream:

    Return the blended soup to the pot. Stir in the whole milk and heavy cream. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Simmer for an additional 5-10 minutes.

    Adjust Consistency:

    If the soup is too thick, add more broth or milk to reach your desired consistency.

    Garnish and Serve:

    Ladle the silky-smooth potato soup into bowls. Garnish with chopped chives or green onions. Serve hot and enjoy!

    This Silky-Smooth Potato Soup is perfect for a comforting meal, especially on chilly days. Feel free to customize it by adding grated cheese, crispy bacon, or a dollop of sour cream if desired.
