Just when you thought you couldn’t love potato soup any more, we go and add an Italian twist for a silky, smooth version that’s sophisticated enough for a dinner party, yet easy enough to make any night of the week.
When pureeing any hot liquid, steam can build up. This may result in the top of the blender jar being dislodged and hot liquid splattering. To avoid this, make sure never to fill the blender more than halfway with the hot liquid. Remove or loosen the center cap of the lid to release the steam, and always drape a dish cloth over the top to catch any small splatters.
Fresh thyme sprigs make a nice substitute for the rosemary in this soup.
