  • 1/4 teaspoon ground bay leaves
  • 2/3 cup heavy cream
  • 2/3 cup half-and-half
  • 1 tablespoon chopped Italian parsley

Instructions

  • Cook potatoes in boiling water until tender but not mushy. Drain potatoes and flash-cool in ice water. Set aside.
  • In a pot, melt the butter. Add diced onion and garlic clove, and saute 5 minutes. Stir in flour. Cook for 5 minutes more on medium heat, stirring often to prevent burning.
  • To the pot, add the cooked potatoes, water, chicken base, kosher salt, rosemary, pepper and ground bay leaves. Blend with a hand blender until smooth. Add the heavy cream and half-and-half. Bring soup to 200 degrees. Simmer for 10 minutes. Add parsley to the pot. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
