Green Garlic Soup


1 bunch of green garlic
1/2 pound potatoes
2 medium onions
1/4 pound butter
2 quarts chicken or vegetable stock


Clean the garlic and peel away any tough outer leaves. The rest of the green leaves are fine to use.

Chop the garlic. Peel and chop the potatoes into 1/2 inch cubes. Peel and chop the onions into small dice.

Melt the butter in a heavy-bottomed pot, add the onion and cook slowly until translucent and tender. Salt, and add the garlic and potatoes. Cook these together for 5 minutes, then pour in the stock and bring to a boil. Lower the heat to a simmer and cook the soup until the potatoes are tender.

Check the seasoning.

This soup can be served either chunky or pureed.
