The star of this recipe is, of course, the potatoes. We recommend using russet potatoes for their creamy and fluffy texture when cooked. Start by peeling and dicing four large russet potatoes. You’ll want them to be roughly the same size to ensure even cooking.
In a large soup pot, melt some butter over medium heat. Add finely chopped onions and minced garlic, sautéing them until they turn translucent and fragrant. This step adds a delicious base flavor to the soup.
Now it’s time to add the diced potatoes to the pot. Stir them around so they get coated with the butter and onion mixture. This will help enhance their flavor as they cook. Pour in some chicken broth, making sure the potatoes are fully submerged. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to low, cover the pot, and let it simmer until the potatoes are fork-tender.
Once the potatoes are cooked through, it’s time to add the creamy element to the soup. Pour in some heavy cream and stir until it’s well incorporated with the potatoes. This will give the soup its rich and velvety texture. Season with salt, pepper, and your choice of herbs and spices. We recommend adding some dried thyme and a dash of paprika for extra depth of flavor.
Let the soup simmer for a few more minutes to allow the flavors to meld together. Give it a taste and adjust the seasonings to your liking. If you prefer a smoother texture, you can use an immersion blender to puree some of the potatoes and create a thicker consistency.
