Potato Soup

Potato Soup (Serve 4+)
1/2 yellow onion, diced
3-4 sliced of bacon, chopped
8 sm-med potatos, peeled & cubed (I used Yukon Gold)
1 lg clove garlic, smashed
3c chicken broth
1/4c milk (or milk alternative, I used some coconut milk)
salt & pepper to taste
chives & crumbled bacon (opt)
  1. Add onion and bacon to a large pot over medium heat.  Saute til onion is translucent and bacon fat is rendered.
  2. Add in potatoes & garlic.  Stir.
  3. Cover most of the way with chicken broth.  Cook over medium-low heat til potatoes are tender.
  4. Use a stick blender to puree soup to desired level of smoothness.  I like to leave mine a bit lumpy.  You can do this is a regular blender...but be careful!
  5. Taste and adjust seasoning.  Add in the milk and reduce to low heat til ready to serve.
