This recipe is called Skint Potato & Onion Soup and it's from Sam Stern's Student Cookbook. He doesn't have that exact recipe online, so I've written it out here. He does have a similar recipe though, for Potato, Onion & Herb Soup, which you can see here: http://www.samstern.co.uk/recipe/potato-onion-herb-soup/
Skint Potato & Onion Soup
(with Optional Crumbled Bacon)
450g/1lb floury potatoes
850ml/1 1/2 pints water, mixed with 1/2 tsp Marigold veg stock
or own veggie/chicken stock or water
Few sprigs fresh parsley
3 tbsps milk
Salt and black pepper
2 rashers grilled streaky back bacon (optional)
This is similar to Sam's recipe for Potato, Onion & Herb Soup (minus the herbs), which you can find here: http://www.samstern.co.uk/recipe/potato-onion-herb-soup/
I use Chicken gravy granules or Oxo for the stock. I don't use that much milk because I don't like it too milky, so just pour in a bit. (I think that's why mine is darker than the one in the book picture). If you don't have a handblender (I don't have one anymore), you can mash or sieve it. I use a potato masher. I don't tend to use parsley.
Hope you like the recipe if you try it. :) I'll have to have a go at making the potato, onion and herb one as well.
