Potato Soup

 I recently shared with my friends my passion for collecting  props for food. This obsession has become so well known with my friends and family that I am now constantly given props as presents. This beautiful soup bowl and spoon used in the photograph of the potato soup recipe came all the way from India.It was gifted to me by my husbands work colleagues whilst he was on business trip in India. The bowls have a beautiful blue intricate pattern hand painted on a lovely cream background. The pair of bowls are simply beautiful and I love them.



Creamy and rich hearty potato soup which is perfect to beat the winter blues.

Ingredients

2 medium potatoes peeled and diced
10 green beans top and tailed and finely chopped
1 small carrot peeled and diced
1 small onion finely chopped
1 small clove garlic peeled and diced
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon white pepper powder
1/2 teaspoon chilli flakes
300 ml water
1 tablespoon single cream for garnish

Method:

1.Place the potatoes, carrots and beans in a microwavable dish, add 100 ml water and cook for five minutes on high until all the vegetables are cooked.
2. In a pan add 1 teaspoon olive oil and wait for it to heat up, add the onions and garlic and saute until onions are soft and translucent.
3. Add the cooked vegetables and add remaining 200 ml water. Bring the soup to boil and simmer for 3-4 minutes.
4. Transfer the soup to a blender jug and puree the soup to a fine puree.
5. Once soup has been pureed transfer it back to the saucepan and add the salt, pepper and chilli flakes.
6. Reheat the soup and simmer for 2-3 minutes.
To serve transfer the soup to serving bowls and swirl some cream over the top of it.Serve with warm crusty bread.

  18. I've just found this recipe for your potato soup and can't wait to try it, I've made potato soup before but never with the ingredients that you have used, the combination must give it an additional lift from just boring potato soup!
