Potatoes and chives are like peanut butter and jelly. They’re just so delicious and happy together. The Potato Chive Soup recipe has a fresh herb flavor that is delightful. The red pepper flakes add a touch of heat that compliments the earthy potatoes and onion chive flavor nicely. Fresh dill and garlic add an extra boost of flavor to the soup.

  • 2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme, dried

  1. In a large soup pot over medium heat add extra virgin olive oil. Add onions and a small pinch of the salt and pepper; sauté onions for 5 minutes.
  2. Add minced garlic, potato cubes, and chives. Sauté for 4 minutes stirring frequently.
  3. Add vegetable broth, water, dill, salt, pepper, thyme and red pepper flakes. Bring soup to a boil.
