"You can never have enough garlic. With enough garlic, you can eat The New York Times." -Morley Safer, Journalist
On a cold fall or winter night there's nothing more comforting than a bowl of potato soup. This recipe is so savory with the garlic and smoked gouda and makes the perfect meal with a simple side salad.
The key to a great potato soup is to not over blend the soup. Starting with the Idaho potatoes and cooking gently is the key. Overcooking or cooking the potatoes too fast will make a gummy soup. Likewise, once the potatoes are just cooked, blend them only briefly. An immersion blender is best. If you are using a blender, blend in two or three smaller batches.
This recipe is great with a bit of fresh herb added when you add the Yukon Gold potatoes. Choose thyme, oregano or a bit of tarragon for terrific flavor.
