Chilled Potato and Herb Soup


4 green onion bulbs, chopped

1 shallot, chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

3/4 cup potatoes, thinly sliced (new potatoes)

4 T basil, chopped

3 T chives, chopped

2 cups vegetable stock

2 T butter

salt & pepper to taste

cream (add when serving)


Gently sweat the chopped onions, shallots, and garlic in butter until soft, about 8 minutes.  Don't let them brown.

Add potatoes and stock to the saucepan.  Salt and pepper to taste.  Bring to a boil, and simmer very gently for 30 minutes.

Add herbs and puree all ingredients in a blender or food processor until very smooth.  Cool.  Gently stir in a dollop of cream before serving.

Serves 4. Vegetarian

It's kind of like vichyssoise but vegetarian.  A great savory soup that can be enjoyed on these hot summer days!
