Cream of Potato and Garlic Soup

From Dorothy McNett's recipes at You can easily cut the recipe in half for 2-3 people. And, if you have oven roasted some heads of garlic, squeeze out the garlic from the skins of 1 - 2 heads of the roasted garlic and use instead of the 10 - 12 cloves.

3-4 large baking potatoes
2 - 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
10 - 12 cloves garlic, finely minced
1 onion, chopped
4-5 cups vegetable stock
1 teaspoon finely snipped fresh rosemary
1 teaspoon finely snipped fresh thyme
1 cup cream or half and half (or almond milk)
salt and pepper as needed

Scrub the potatoes, peel if desired. Cut into small chunks and place in a glass or ceramic batter bowl. Cover with a glass plate. Cook in microwave, using 3 - 4 minutes per potato as a guide, or until tender. Set aside. In heavy bottomed saucepan or large saute pan, heat the olive oil and then toss in the minced garlic and chopped onion. Cook on medium-high heat, stirring often, for about 10 minutes or even more, until they begin to turn brown but not crispy brown. In food processor or a blender, whirl the onions, garlic and potatoes to make a nice smooth consistency. Place back in the pan, add the vegetable stock and herbs. Bring to a boil, reduce to simmer and cook about 5 minutes to blend the flavors, stirring often. Slowly add the cream, salt and pepper. Heat but do not let it boil. Taste to get seasonings just right and serve!
