Ingredients

How to make it

  • Place potatoes and chicken stock in a large pot.
  • Bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
  • Reduce heat to medium and simmer until potatoes are tender, about 10 minutes.
  • While the potatoes are cooking, melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat.
  • Throw in all the onions and the garlic and cook about 15 minutes, or until the onions are soft.
  • Be sure to stir the onions frequently so that they cook evenly without burning.
  • Transfer the onions to the pot containing the potatoes and stock once the potatoes are tender.
  • Simmer for 5-10 more minutes, then remove from heat.
  • Dump the contents of the pot in a blender (do it batchwise if your blender won't hold all of the mixture at once) and purée.
  • Return the puréed soup to the pot and add the half-and-half.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper; serve it forth in bowls and garnish with the chopped chives.

    Made this for the family the other night. Very yummy. This soup would make a good base for other soups too. It was quite a bit like a potato leek that I like to make. I was making extra for my parents to take and tripled the batch, that was a lot of soup! I might add more potatoes if I was looking for something with more substance. Thanks for the recipe!

    Wonderful. I love all the varieties of onions together. They each add a subtle difference and sum is greater than the parts. Love this.
