ingredients

In a large pot over medium heat, sauté the onion in one tablespoon of the butter until it’s translucent.

SAUTÉ ONION:

Add the diced potatoes and two cups of water. Increase the heat to medium-high and bring to a boil. Once it boils, reduce the heat and simmer until the potatoes are fork-tender, about 15 minutes.

SIMMER POTATOES:

Remove the pot from the heat and mash the potatoes. If you use an immersion blender, add the milk before you mash. If you like a chunky soup, use a potato masher and leave some potato chunks.

MASH POTATOES:

Stir in the milk, remaining butter, salt, and pepper.

ADD REMAINING INGREDIENTS:

Return to the heat and simmer for 5 more minutes. Carefully transfer the pureed soup to bowls and top with shredded cheese and green onion if desired.
