  • 4 large russet potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 cups chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Chopped chives for garnish


  1. Heat a large pot over medium heat and add a bit of olive oil. Sauté the chopped onions until they become translucent.
  2. Add the minced garlic and cook for another minute until fragrant.
  3. Add the diced potatoes and chicken or vegetable broth to the pot. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer and cook until the potatoes are tender, about 15-20 minutes.
  4. Use an immersion blender to puree the soup until smooth. Alternatively, you can transfer the soup to a blender in batches and blend until smooth, then return it to the pot.
  5. Stir in the heavy cream and cheddar cheese until the cheese is melted and the soup is creamy.
  6. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Serve hot, garnished with chopped chives and extra shredded cheese if desired.
