…for creamy potato soup with kidney beans:
Peel and finely chop the onion & garlic. Peel potatoes, celery & carrots & cut into small cubes. Cut the leek into fine rings. Pour the kidney beans over a sieve & allow to drain. Finely chop the parsley (from the soup greens) & set aside for the garnish.
Heat a large pot with a good dash of oil, add onions & garlic to the pot & sauté over medium heat for 2 – 3 minutes, turning occasionally. Then add the prepared vegetables & sauté briefly. Next, add 2 teaspoons of savory & a good pinch of salt & pepper, stir everything well & pour in 1,5 liters of water (alternatively, vegetable stock or broth).
Then bring the soup to the boil & simmer gently over low to medium heat for approx. 10 – 12 minutes until the vegetables are cooked or have reached the desired consistency. Then lift out about half of the cooked veggies (without liquid) with a soup ladle, place on a plate & set aside for a moment.
Pour 200 milliliters of cream into the soup & puree everything with a hand blender for about 1 minute until the soup has a nice creamy consistency. Then add the vegetables back to the soup, also add the drained kidney beans & season everything with cumin, salt & pepper to taste.
Stir the soup well again, warm through briefly and then dish up onto deep plates. Garnish with some chopped parsley & serve. Have fun cooking & Bon appetit!
