My niece seems to have “inherited” that picky eater quality and now it’s my brother who’s having difficulty making her eat food that’s good for her growing body. Finding a healthy but delicious soup that will cater to their daughter’s taste is a problem that my brother and his wife have been having for so long. So here came “the best sister in the world” to the rescue! I emailed him this simple recipe that I have tried myself.
I guaranteed him that my niece will be a vegetable lover in no time, at least temporarily. I guess it worked because I received a pecan pie from his wife in return.
3 tablespoons Kerrygold unsalted butter
1 cup chopped onion
1 potato, peeled and diced
2 cups water or chicken stock
1 1/2 cups steamed vegetables, i.e. carrots, broccoli, spinach, or peas
Salt and pepper
1/2 cup heavy cream
In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and cook until tender without browning. Stir in diced potato and liquid. Bring to a boil and simmer until potato is tender. Stir in your steamed vegetable of choice and return to a simmer. Puree the soup in batches in a blender and return to saucepan. Season soup with salt and pepper and finish with heavy cream.
