Roasted Garlic Potato Soup

A light, yet hearty comfort food soup to make any time of the year.

8-roasted-garlic-potato-soup

Potato soup is easy to make and tastes so good.  It’s fairly light and hearty at the same time.

This soup is made with roasted garlic, onion, butter and russet potatoes.  Just before serving, Swiss cheese (grated or chopped) is added to the soup.

The combination of flavors tastes really good together and reminds me of comfort food.

If you’re a fan of garlic mashed potatoes, you’ll love this Roasted Garlic Potato Soup.

The garlic is roasted in smoked paprika which gives it hint of smoky flavor.

And the soup is topped with crispy onions and chopped green onion which adds a flavorful crunch to the mix.

Here’s how to make it.
