How To Make Irish Potato Soup

Use enough water to cover potatoes, heat and bring to a boil for 20 minutes, or until tender.

Meanwhile, dice the onion, add the onions to a small pot with the butter. Sauté the onions until they are cooked through and translucent; about 5 to7 minutes.

Add the flour and stir vigorously to make a paste. Set aside and stir occasionally.

Turn off the potatoes. Reserve 3 cups of the potato water and set aside. Drain the remaining water from the potatoes.

Reserve two cups of the potatoes, then add the remaining potatoes back into the pot. Pour in about two cups of the reserved potato water, along with the onion mixture.

Use a potato masheror an immersion blender to cream up the potatoes.

I love my KitchenAid Immersion Blender and use it often.

Heat through simmering over low heat for about 5 minutes. Stir in the reserved potatoes, and season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Serve this creamy delicious soup hot with shredded cheddar cheese, sour cream and chives.
