  • 1 1/3 lb yellow potatoes, roughly diced
  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • 1 cup onion, sliced
  • 1/2 cup cream
  • 4 tbsp high quality olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper


  • Thoroughly rinse and scrub the potatoes. Peel the potatoes. Dice the peeled potatoes into bite-sized cubes.
  • Chop the onion into small pieces.
  • In a large pot, sauté the onion until translucent and fragrant, about 2 minutes over medium heat.
  • Add in the diced potatoes and stir with a wooden spoon.
  • Add in the (optional) ground black pepper so that it warms along with the diced potatoes and onions.
  • Pour in the chicken stock and stir, scraping the bottom of the pot to release all of the caramelized onions.
  • Cover the pot and continue to cook over low heat for 10 minutes.
  • After 10 minutes time, remove the cover and turn off heat. Check that the potatoes are fork tender and soft.
  • Using an immersion blender, blend all contents of the pot until smooth and no lumps remain.
  • Carefully pour in the cream and give a stir until dispersed. Taste and add salt and pepper as necessary.
  • Ladle soup into bowls and top with optional grated cheddar cheese, diced green onions, and freshly ground black pepper. Serve with slices of toasted baguette.
