1 to 2green onions,trimmed and chopped (both white and green parts)
Heat oil and sautée vegetables: In a large cooking pot set over medium-high heat, add extra virgin olive oil. Add the onions, carrots, celery, garlic, and potatoes. Season with kosher salt, black pepper, cumin, paprika, and turmeric. Cook the vegetables, tossing occasionally, for about 5 to 7 minutes until softened a bit.
Add the broth and simmer: Add the broth and bring to a boil for about 5 minutes, then lower the heat and cover the pot partway. Allow the soup to simmer for about 20 to 30 minutes or until the potatoes are cooked through and very tender.
Add the milk and adjust seasoning: Remove the pot from the heat, and stir in the milk. Taste and adjust for seasoning.
Use an immersion blender: Using an immersion blender, carefully blend the soup until smooth. Alternatively, you can transfer the soup ⅓ at a time to a countertop blender until all the soup is smooth.
Serve: Transfer to serving bowls and garnish with a drizzle of olive oil, parsley, and chopped onions.
This potato soup will keep in the fridge for up to 4 days. To store, allow the soup to cool, then transfer to a glass container with a tight lid. Refrigerate.
If you prefer your sop with a little texture, don’t puree it at all or only puree part of it.
