After four years of hearing of this wonderful soup from Douglas, we have obtained the recipe! Please enjoy this delicious soup on the dreary days coming up this week. I’ve separated out the list of ingredients, but left the recipe exactly how I received it for authenticity!
1 large onion, or three spring onions, diced
1 TBSP butter
1 lb potatoes, peeled and sliced
2 quarts (8 cups) water (you could trade in a broth or stock here)
1 TBSP salt
2 bunches of radish leaves
4-6 TBSP heavy cream or 2-3 TBSP butter
Fresh parsley or chives for serving
Dice a large onion and sauté in 1 tablespoon of butter.
Add 1 pound of peeled sliced potatoes,2 quarts of water and 1 tablespoon of salt.
Simmer for 40 to 50 minutes until potatoes are tender.
Mash the vegetables with a fork or pass the soup through a food mill.
Reheat to a simmer and add 2 bunches of radish leaves.
Simmer for 10 to 15 minutes.
Off heat and just before serving, stir in 4 to 6 tablespoons of heavy cream OR 2 to 3 tablespoons of butter. Pour soup into bowls and decorate with 2 to 3 tablespoons of minced parsley OR chives.
