Vegetarian Potato Soup

I love soups and stews and usually make one, or a  chili, two to three times a week. I grew up in a “potato” household so when I came across this Vegetarian Potato Soup recipe, I had to try it. I garnished it with chopped cilantro. A little sharp cheddar would be nice, but not necessarily calorie conscious. If you are looking to save calories, use milk instead of cream. At the end, add a little less cream or milk if you like your soup thick. I mashed  the potatoes in the pot because i like the little chunks it leaves. If you want a creamier soup, use an immersion blender or regular blender.

I should have made more. The bowl I set aside for my vegetarian brother may never get there because the soup was that good.

Vegetarian Potato Soup

Pots and pans: 5-6 qt pot

-7 medium potatoes, sliced (1 inch thick)
-1 medium onion, sliced
-5 garlic cloves, chopped
-2 vegetable bouillon cubes
-2 tablespoons cumin
-2 cups cream
-2 oz butter
– Pinch of salt
– Pinch of ground black pepper

Put the sliced potatoes and onion in the pot and cover with water. Add the bouillon and a pinch of salt and cook. When it is boiling add the butter and continue cooking until about half of the water evaporates. Take it off the stove add the cumin and garlic and mash the potatoes when completed put back on the stove. When it’s simmering again add the cream, a pinch of salt and pepper.

Serve the potato soup and enjoy!
