- 6 cloves of garlic, peeled
- 6 red potatoes, peeled and cut into 1 inch pieces
- 2 tablespoons of olive oil, divided
- ½ teaspoon of ground black pepper
- 1 medium sized onion, chopped
- 3 cups of chicken stock
- 1 cup of water
- 1 cup of milk
Open your Garlic Shaker®. Toss an entire head of garlic into it. Close the lids. Shake vigorously for 30 seconds. Open a lid. Pour out the peeled garlic cloves.
Preheat the oven to about 425 Degrees Fahrenheit.
In a shallow roasting pan, place the potatoes and drizzle equally using 1 tablespoon of olive oil.
Sprinkle potatoes with pepper, and stir lightly to coat evenly.
In a large saucepan, heat the remaining olive oil and sauté the onions and garlic for 5 minutes, or until aromatic.
Add the potatoes and pour the stick stock and water. Bring everything to a boil and then reduce the heat. Simmer for about 20 minutes, uncovered.
Using a blender, process the mixture until almost smooth and then return to the pot.
Pour the milk and sprinkle with salt, as desired.
Transfer the soup into bowls and serve while hot.
