As you have probably realized from reading my recipes, I could live on soups and desserts. I’m using St. Patrick’s Day as an excuse for serving up this creamy Irish baked potato soup, but I enjoy this favorite throughout the year.
If you are REALLY into St. Patty’s Day, you could add a drop or 2 of green food coloring, but I am happy just garnishing with bright green chopped chives or green onions or cilantro.
My son jokingly says his favorite vegetable is cilantro, but I think he means it. This soup can be served as a completely creamy textured soup by pureeing in small batches, but I like the chunky texture of the chopped baked potatoes in the cream base.
Here’s a little Irish blessing before you enjoy your soup:
May you have:
A world of wishes at your command.
God and his angels close to hand.
Friends and family their love impart,
and Irish blessings in your heart!
