Ingredients

3 Tbsp
butter, unsalted
1 c
onion, chopped
1
potato, peeled and diced
2 c
water
1.5 c
vegetables, steamed
"just a pinch" of salt
"just a pinch" of pepper
1/2 c
heavy cream

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat then add the chopped onion and cook until tender without browning.
As you can see, I elected to add some mushrooms that needed to be used up!
2
Stir in diced potato and liquid. Bring to a boil and simmer until potato is tender.
3
Stir in your steamed vegetable of choice and return to a simmer.
4
Puree the soup in batches in a blender and return to saucepan; or use an immersion blender - Leave 1 cup of vegetables not pureed if a chunkier soup is preferred.
5
Season soup with salt and pepper and finish with heavy cream. Heat through and garnish as you like!
6
SUGGESTION: Carrots, broccoli, spinach or peas would all be great in this recipe!
