This is one of those soups you can't get enough of. Potatoes are roasted and pureed with chicken broth, onions, garlic and milk for a hearty, creamy soup.
INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):
- 6 baking potatoes, peeled and cut into 1 inch pieces
- 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
- 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1 onion, chopped
- 6 cloves garlic, peeled
- 3 cups chicken broth
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup whole milk
- salt to taste
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
Place potatoes in a shallow roasting pan and drizzle with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Sprinkle with pepper; stir to coat. Bake for 25 minutes, or until potatoes are browned. Reserve 1 cup of roasted potatoes.
In a 3 quart saucepan heat remaining oil; saute onions for 5 minutes. Add potatoes and garlic and stir in broth and water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 20 minutes.
Spoon half of broth mixture into a blender; blend until nearly smooth. Repeat with remaining mixture; return all to pot. Stir in milk and season with salt to taste. Ladle into bowls and top with reserved roasted potatoes.
