February still feels chilly and wintery, but when the weather is cold, there’s something inherently comforting about savouring a warm bowl of soup. Beyond its soul-soothing qualities, this recipe offers a delicious meal for lunch or dinner, that nourishes the body and warms you from the inside! With only a couple of staple ingredients, this recipe is extremely simple yet fully flavourful. Essentially, it’s easy to make, doesn’t take long and once it’s ready, you can keep it in the fridge or even the freezer for a convenient go-to meal. Embrace the cosy vibes of February with a bowl of homemade goodness that is not only filling but also full of flavour and health benefits.

The main star of this soup is the humble potato. Often overlooked when it comes to vegetables with potent nutritional values, potatoes actually offer a range of health benefits. Rich in essential nutrients like vitamin C, vitamin B6 and potassium, potatoes contribute to a healthy immune system, support brain function and help regulate blood pressure. The high fibre content in potatoes aids digestion and promotes a feeling of fullness, making them a satisfying and nutritious addition to meals. Additionally, potatoes provide a good source of energy, complex carbohydrates and antioxidants, contributing to overall well-being.

The yellow onions in this recipe also add a delicious flavour and fragrance to the meal. But they offer more than just taste benefits. In fact, onions bring a host of health benefits to the table. Packed with antioxidants such as quercetin, yellow onions have anti-inflammatory properties that contribute to overall health. They also contain vitamin C, providing immune support and regulating collagen production and iron absorption. The sulphur compounds found in onions have been associated with potential cardiovascular benefits, including heart health. Additionally, yellow onions are a good source of fibre, supporting digestive health and promoting a feeling of satiety.

So, now you are equipped with all the interesting details and nutritional information, it’s time to get started on the recipe itself.

  1. Begin by finely slicing the onions and chopping the potatoes into small cubes.
  2. Next, heat up a saucepan to medium heat. Add a generous lug of olive oil or butter, then mix in the onions and sauté them with garlic until lightly golden.
  3. Now, add in the chopped potatoes, salt and pepper and stir for two minutes until coated, then add in the broth and bring to the boil.
  4. Once boiled, turn down the heat to a gentle simmer and cook for 20-30 minutes or until the potatoes are soft and cooked through. Gradually add water if needed.
  5. When the potatoes are cooked, turn off the heat, add in the cream and blend until smooth and creamy without any lumps.
  6. Serve immediately with croutons, a sprinkle of parsley or a drizzle of olive oil.
