St. Patricks Day Soup Recipe


St. Patrick’s Day is on Thursday. Why not try something Irish made with traditional irish ingredients to give your St. Patrick’s Day a boost. If you are going to be out drinking you might need something light but filling to line the stomach. This is a soup with cheese croutons and will leave you with plenty of space for something more Irish, if you desire.

2 medium white onion, chopped
600g potatoes, peeled and chopped
Salt and pepper

Melt the butter in a saucepan, add the onion and potato and cook gently, covered for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
