Home today for the last few days of Nick's summer vacation. He is off playing video games with buddies so I made myself some soup for lunch. Potatoes, garlic and chives were all in the farm share that I picked up last week. Yum....... Serves 1 for adjust accordingly.
Potato & Garlic Soup
adapted from Gourmet, November 1993
1 large garlic clove
1/4 lb. unpeeled red potatoes, diced
2 cups vegetable stock
2 Tbsp. low fat milk
Chopped fresh chives
Cook the garlic and the potatoes in a small saucepan coated with cooking spray, until they are very lightly browned. Add the stock and simmer the mixture for 20 minutes, or until the potatoes are very soft.
Puree the soup in a small food processor or blender with milk until smooth. Transfer to a bowl and season to taste with salt and freshly ground pepper. Garnish with chives.
