Ingredient Notes:

Apples: For this potato soup recipe I used Cosmic Crisp apples. These apples are firm, and crispy, and have that sweet and tart flavor profile. They are great for snacking, but also for baking and cooking. What’s great about these apples is that they add a bit of sweetness to the potato soup without having to add sugar. Cosmic Crisp’s are naturally slow to brown as well so if you have these around your house and are looking for an addition to a snack platter, lunch box, or charcuterie, they’re fantastic!

How to make potato soup:

  1. Preheat oven to 425F. Line a large sheet pan with parchment paper.  Arrange chopped potatoes, apples, full garlic cloves and onion on the sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and 1 1/2 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp ground pepper.
  2. Once everything is roasted, add to a blender along with vegetable stock paste, water, milk, 1 1/2 cups shredded cheese, 1 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp pepper to a blender. Blend until smooth and add more water if needed to make the soup smoother.
  3. Add blended soup to a large soup pot and warm over medium-low heat until a desired temperature. Serve the soup garnished with fresh dill, chili flakes, cheddar cheese, apple and/or drizzle of olive oil. Optional: brulee the top of the soup once the shredded cheese is added.
