2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 onion, chopped
3 cups potatoes, peeled and cubed
3 cups water
Approx. 1 1/4 cups milk
3 Tbsp. minced fresh lovage plus garnish
salt and black pepper to taste
Heat the oil in a large saucepan and add the onions and potatoes. Cook over low heat for 10 minutes. Add 3 cups of water and continue simmering until the potatoes are tender. Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly. Puree the cooled mixture in a food processor or blender. Place into a clean pan and stir in the lovage and milk slowly, stopping when you feel it’s the right thickness. Heat through, and serve with a garnish of lovage leaves. Makes 4 servings.
