Garlic and Potato Soup

from Vegetarian Times . . .
olive oil or margarine
vegetable broth
parsley for garnish

I was expecting this soup to be sort of like liquefied mashed potatoes, but I was quite wrong! Light, refreshing, and very simple, this might even make a nice chilled soup during the summer months.

On the side: a wedge of brown soda bread and some sliced tomatoes with olive oil, salt, and pepper.

It's not even October yet, and I'm already loving Soup Month. Wahoo!

do you have a budget for soup month? It seems a bit costly.

veg*triathlete, thanks! I got lucky with that tomato -- it was a leftover from Dan's camping trip last week. I wasn't sure how good it was going to be . . . but it was excellent!

Johanna, thanks! And thanks for the update on the dessert pizza!

Anonymous, thanks for stopping by. No, I don't have a budget for Soup Month, beyond my normal grocery budget. My plan is to actually save a little money in the long run, by cooking with the produce that is in season (locally) now, enjoying some of it, and freezing some of it for later. I always thought of soup as a budget-friendly meal, anyhow, since one of the main ingredients is usually water!

That's a really pretty picture! I have that Veg Times, but really wish I had the tomatoes.

I am always leery of potato soups, because like you, I expect watery mashed potatoes. My boyfriend made a really super potato and spinach soup a few weeks ago, and I was blown away. Simple but filling.

Why did I visit your blog before lunch! Now I have to find out where to get a great soup.
Thanks. This is beautiful!

You always make me very very hungry, and this soup is no exception!

Wow! I thought I was the only one zoomed in on those tomatoes. They really look good and make me want to go out and find one and just bite into it. I LOVE tomatoes.

Your soup month post made me think of the wondeful chickpea veggie pasta soup (not recalling the name) that I tested for you awhile back. It really grew on me and I should make it again.

The potato soup and the escarole/bean/garlic soup all look yummy. The cool nights are making me start to crave warm soup even though it still heats up during the day.

Glad to see you posting again!
