Hearty, nourishing, delicious, nutritious, and dead easy to make. This garlic and potato soup, which I affectionately refer to, as my “Happy Peasant Soup” (do you like the smiley face I made in my photo?) is quite simply phenomenal. I don’t know about you, but when I travel, I always seek out the local peasant food in order to get a really authentic taste of the culture. Not to mention the fact that it is always the best food on offer! You just can’t go past rustic country food to feed the body and the soul.
I fell in love with this hearty potato soup on a family trip to Ireland many years ago. Maybe it’s the Irish in me, but give me a chunky soup or stew, and I am happy. This chunky garlic and potato soup really hits the mark.
Self-respecting vampires far and wide are risking death to have a taste. This phytochemical rich garlic broth will fight off any viral vampires you have to fight this Winter, whether it be a simple cold, flu, minor infection, candida, immune disorder, or other nasty. This garlic and potato soup can’t hurt and can only help, and will keep you happy like every self respecting peasant before us!
**If you want this soup to taste exactly like mine, the vegetable stock/broth that you use is important. Not all stocks were created equal. They really do vary in quality and taste. I always use Massel vegetable stock, which I believe is superior in quality and flavour. Massel stocks are vegan, gluten free, lactose free, kosher and free of MSG. When I don't make my own home made stock (I really do need to post that recipe) I always use Massel stocks. I actually prefer to use the stock cubes so I can control the strength. I use 1 stock cube for every 2 cups of filtered water.
