My mom taught me this recipe. She did it in cooking school, originally without the potato. She found that she didn't have the velvety consistency that she wanted and then decided to add a potato to the blend. It worked and is completely delicious.

It can be served hot with a nice warm loaf of bread, or cold with some fresh veggies or a sandwich on the side :)
