Hi, it’s been a minute. I’ve had to take the time to focus on studying for the National Counselor Exam (NCE) and I unfortunately, had to step away from the blog for a little but I am back! I am so excited to be back into my hobbies and doing the things I love. I found this recipe from the New York Times Cooking website; it caught my eye because of the soup being topped with sour cream & onion chips. The recipe calls for the soup to be made in a slow cooker, but I made it in a stock pot and it came out AMAZING. I top mine with extra cracked black pepper, cheese, & of course potato chips. This soup has such a different taste and it’s so creamy, it’s an automatic new favorite.
- 2 TBSP Olive Oil
- 1 LB Yukon Gold Potatoes, scrubbed, peeled, and cut into 1in chunks

- 1/2 Yellow Onion, minced
- 6 Cloves Garlic, smashed & minced
- 3 1/2 Cups Vegetable Stock
- 3 TBSP Unsalted Butter
- 2 TBSP Dry White Wine
- 1/2 TSP Dried Thyme
- 1/2 TSP Garlic Powder

- Salt & Pepper
- Sour cream & onion potato chips, for topping
- Shredded cheddar, for topping
Let’s Get Cooking
Prep all your ingredients beforehand, chopping the onion, potatoes, cauliflower, and garlic.
In a large stock pot, heat the olive oil and add in the garlic + onion and let saute for about 2-4 min. Once fragrant, add in the potatoes + cauliflower. Let the vegetables cook for about 8 minutes on MED heat.
Add in the beans + vegetable stock + butter + thyme + garlic powder + dry white wine + salt + pepper and stir to combine. Bring the soup to a boil and allow to simmer for about 1 hour or until all the vegetables are soft. Using a potato masher, mash the vegetables until the soup has a chunky texture, allow to cook for another 30 minutes.
Using a blender, blend the soup [ in batches if you need to ] and return to the pot. Stir in the lemon juice + greek yogurt/sour cream. Top with more black pepper.
Serve with shredded cheddar cheese & sour cream & onion chips!
