Ingredients

  • 6 potatoes, peeled and cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 6 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • salt to taste

Directions

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).

Place potatoes in a shallow roasting pan and drizzle with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Sprinkle with pepper; stir to coat. Bake for 25 minutes, or until potatoes are browned. Reserve 1 cup of roasted potatoes.

In a 3 quart saucepan heat remaining oil; saute onions for 5 minutes. Add potatoes and garlic and stir in broth and water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 20 minutes.

Spoon half of broth mixture into a blender; blend until nearly smooth. Repeat with remaining mixture; return all to pot. Stir in milk and season with salt to taste. Ladle into bowls and top with reserved roasted potatoes.
