French Fry Soup
Decided to migrate this recipe over here from my *mostly* defunct Small Change Adds Up blog...
We still love this recipe, 4 years (really? has it been that long?) later. Especially since I have a friend who is hosting a "Soup Swap" (of recipes) on her blog.
It's a little bit of a glorified (Fast) version of potato soup that I came up with in 2009.
2 Tbs Olive Oil
1 Tbs Butter
1 medium Onion, chopped
1 bag of frozen French Fries (The healthier the better...)
2 qts chicken broth (I used these great boxes of Rachel Ray's Natural Chicken Stock)
Mash your potatoes up to the consistency you prefer (Or really pulverize it in the blender, if you want CREAMY.... I prefer some chuncks in mine), and serve with yummy, crusty, toasted bread.
Variations on a theme: You can use any frozen french fries you like, but I highly recommend the less "processed", closer to the garden varieties. Some that we have used, all from Trader Joe's: Garlic French Fries, Chipotle French Fries, Sweet Potato French Fries
Sometimes I add some Basil... but then it is less "French Fry" soup.
