Creamy Garlic Potato Soupon November 11th, 2013 Posted in Soups
Well, whether we like it or not winter is coming, and although I’m not a big fan, in fact I’m not a fan at all (I’m a sunshine girl), this cold weather brings something nice with it and that’s the opportunity to make a super easy and versatile dish – soup.
What’s easier than cooking some veggies, spicing them up, adding water, blending or not and serving it? SO easy.
I like to play around with my soups and come up with something different every time.
A few weeks ago my husband was sick, so we got him some tissues, some tea, a lot of love and of course some soup. But not just any soup – Garlic Soup!
I don’t think there’s anything better than garlic to fight a nasty cold, but on the other hand I’m not really objective because I adore garlic. I know, it’s not a very social ingredient but really, I don’t care.
Oh and for the record, it did the job.
