Potato Garlic Soup
I have been pretty sick this week and had no appetite what so ever. I wanted to make a nice hot soup that would feel good going down my soar throat. I was craving potato soup anyway but with the extra garlic the soup now has many health benefits. Garlic has long been considered a herbal "wonder drug", with a reputation in folklore for preventing everything from the common cold and flu to the Plague!
3 large potatoes, finely diced
2 scallions, sliced from bottom to top
4 cups chicken broth
1-1/2 cups milk
1 tablespoon garlic paste or 2 cloves, smashed
salt and pepper to taste
1. In a 6 quart saucepan on medium heat add chicken broth, potatoes and scallions, cook until tender about 25 minutes. Add garlic, salt, pepper and milk, mix well.
Yields: 6 servings
