This is a lovely smooth and creamy soup that tastes fantastic with toasted bread or croutons. If you are a potato-person, you're gonna love this simple and easy to make, delicious soup!
3 medium potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
1 onion or leek, peeled and cut into chunks
3 tbsp. sour cream
1 and ½ cups milk (add more for thinner soup)
salt to taste
white pepper to taste
juice of half a lemon (or less according to your taste)
Put the potatoes and onions in a pan and add enough water to cover them. Bring to a boil and cook until potatoes are tender. If any water remains, drain it out, then add the milk and sour cream, salt and pepper into the cooked potato/onions. Put these in a blender or processor and blend until smooth and creamy.
Pour the soup back into your pan and bring to a light simmer until it thickens. Adjust salt and pepper, and once the thickness is to your satisfaction, add the lemon juice, stir and turn off the heat. Serve hot, garnished with chives or the green part of spring onions or croutons. Enjoy!
