Creamy potato and onion soup

    1 hour 5 min

    This is a super-thick and creamy soup. It's something to look forward to during those cold winter months. Potatoes are simmered with onions and milk, then pureed until smooth. Serve with garlic croutons or fresh bread.

    1. In a large pot over high heat, combine the potatoes, onions and water to cover and boil for 30 to 45 minutes or until tender. Drain the mixture, reserving 750ml of the water. Transfer this in small batches to a liquidiser and puree until smooth.
    2. In the same pot over medium heat, combine the flour and the butter, stirring together well, to form a roux. Slowly add the milk, stirring constantly, until well blended. Reduce heat to low and add the pureed potato mixture. Let simmer, stirring occasionally for 5 to 10 minutes. Add the parsley and season with salt and pepper to taste.

    I cut the recipe down, as I don't have a pot big enough for that much soup! But I found it really bland, it needs something else in it, but I haven't quite figured it out yet.  -  10 Sep 2014


    Lovely soup but beware - it doesn't scale down the 3 cups of juice so if you make less, reduce the amount of liquid you use as it was a little thin.  -  09 Mar 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is a really good recipe. I didn't put all of the potato and onion mixture in the blender because my family likes pieces of potato in their soup.  -  29 Apr 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
