Creamy Potato & Parsley Soup

Creamy Potato & Parsley Soup

This creamy potato and parsley soup is very healthy and will warm you up after a cold day out. It is vegetarian but can easily be made vegan by replacing the butter with oil and the cream with a plant based substitute.

Being French, I like to eat soup with bread, just as is or make croutons out of it (I fry bread cubes in a pan with olive oil or butter). If you’re looking for an easy bread recipe that would go well with parsley soup’s rustic flavors, try out my rye hazelnut bread recipe.

Parsley

To make this soup, I used curly parsley which is supposed to be less aromatic that flat parsley. If using the latter, start with one cup and add some more to taste after blending.

Parsley is highly nutritious and has a lot of health benefits : it is rich in antioxidant nutrients, has antibacterial properties and is good for your heart and bones!

Don’t throw away the stems, you can use them to make a bouquet garni or a pesto for example!
