Potato Skin Soup Recipe

* Wash the potatoes carefully and peel, not too thinly. Put the peeled potatoes in cold water and reserve for other uses.

Step 1

Cook the chopped onion and potato skins in the butter until they are tender. Add the stock; bring to a boil.

Step 2

Remove the soup from the stove and blend on high speed. Reheat, adding light cream if it is too thick. Serve sprinkled with parsley or chives. On special occasions, try a teaspoon of chopped walnuts sprinkled over the soup instead of the parsley or chives.

Serves four.
