  • 1
    Peel and roughly chop potatoes. Discard tops and bottoms of green onions and mince the remaining pieces.
  • 2
    Add potatoes and onions to a medium-sized saucepan and cover with water. Boil on high for 30 minutes, adding more water to the pot as needed, until potatoes as well cooked and soft.
  • 3
    Remove pot from heat and drain the water over a strainer until it is just under the level of your cooked potatoes. Return any onions and basil the strainer catches to the pot.
  • 4
    Add 2 1/2 cups milk to potatoes and mash until mostly smooth, leaving a few small chunks for a hearty texture. Add more milk, a dash at a time, until soup reaches your preferred consistency.
  • 5
    Season liberally with salt and pepper to taste. Return pot to the stove and heat, stirring frequently, for 2-3 minutes. Serve garnished with additional green onions if desired.
