Potato Garlic Soup With Roasted Scallions

Recently I was browsing supermarket shelves for a good vegetable broth (making my own was not an option that day) and stumbled up on Superior Touch bouillon paste. Despite strong flavor, it gave my soup a little color which turned out a little darker than I expected. So if you can, you’d better use homemade bullion because it’s 100% foolproof.

Pro tip:

You can also bake garlic in foil with 1 tbsp of olive oil and salt at 400F/200C for 25 minutes. That makes a great ready to go garlic confit.

Serving size:

4 servings

Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp Butter
  • 10 leaves of Sage, chopped
  • 13 cloves of Garlic
  • 8 gold Potatoes
  • 40oz of Vegetable broth
  • 6 Scallions
  • Salt
  • Olive Oil
  • 2 tbsp of Sour Cream

Heat oven to 350F

Cut six scallions and halves, mix with olive oil, salt, and roast for 5-7 minutes.

When potatoes are ready, pour the mixture into a blender, add 2 tbsp of sour cream and purée.

If it looks too thick, add more broth.

Strain soup, pour into a plate and decorate with scallions.
