When I was growing up I did not like soup. I liked my moms chili, but that is not soup. I did not like soup in college either. I could not understand how any of my classmates could ladle the gloppy nastiness out of the big pots and actually eat it.
After we moved to Tennessee I discovered potato soup at Rafferety's and at O'Charly's. A soup convert was born. My son and husband are not really fans of soup but my daughter loves it! She is more than happy to try any kind of soup that is available.
This soup had only a few ingredients and really was easy to throw together. I managed to forget to slice the garlic and threw it in the pot whole. The soup smelled great and I was planning on leaving it chunky because I like soup with heft. However, it looked like the milk curdled and I was, frankly, grossed out. So I used my immersion blender and made the soup smooth.
I tossed some shredded Parmesan cheese and some parsley on top and gave this to my daughter. She liked it but I don't think she was terribly hungry so most of it went uneaten. The rest is in the freezer for another chilly day.
