Ingredients

  • 6
    cups
    vegetable broth
  • 3
    medium potatoes, russet or yukon
    about 4 cups roughly diced
  • 1/2
    onion
  • 2
    leeks
  • 2
    stalks celery
  • 3-4
    cloves
    garlic
  • 3
    medium carrots
  • 3/4
    teaspoon
    dried thyme
  • 1/2
    teaspoon
    dried rosemary
  • 1
    teaspoon
    salt
  • 1/2
    teaspoon
    black pepper
  • 2
    Tablespoon
    butter
    preferably Irish butter

Instructions

  1. Peel the potatoes and roughly dice them into 1 inch cubes. Remove the garlic cloves from the skins. Roughly chop the carrots, celery, leeks, and onion.

  2. Heat a large pot or dutch oven over medium heat. Add the butter or oil. Add the carrots, onion, leeks, celery, and garlic. Saute in the butter for 8-10 minutes, or until softened slightly and beginning to caramelize.

  3. Stir in the potatoes, broth, and seasonings.

  4. Bring the soup to a boil, then lower the heat immediately. Cover and simmer for about 25-30 minutes, until the vegetables are softened through.

  5. Remove the pot from the heat, and blend the soup using an immersion blender until it’s smooth.

  6. Alternately, working in batches, transfer the soup to a blender. Cover and turn slowly to medium-high speed, blending until creamy.

Recipe Notes

The amount of salt needed will depend on the amount of salt in the broth you use. Start with less and add more to taste.
To store leftovers: Transfer leftover soup to an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for 3-4 days, per USDA.
To freeze: To freeze blended soup, allow it to cool to room temperature, then carefully transfer the soup to a freezer-safe container or bag. Squeeze out as much air as possible, then seal. Lay flat in the freezer until hardened. Freeze for 4-6 months, per USDA. To defrost, set the bag or container on a plate in the refrigerator overnight.
