  • Summary

    This ultra creamy potato-based soup uses young green garlic, which is harvested in the spring before the bulbs have a chance to develop. If you can’t find it, substitute leeks instead.

    Ingredients

    • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter
    • 24 young garlic plants, white part only, halved lengthwise (about 8 ounces worth)
    • 3/4 cup water
    • 1 1/2 pounds (22 ounces) small red potatoes, peeled and quartered
    • 6 cups (1 1/2 quarts) chicken or vegetable broth
    • 1/2 cup heavy cream
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
    • 2 to 2 1/2 teaspoons white wine vinegar, to taste
    • ground pepper to taste
    • thinly sliced garlic scapes, olive oil, and watercress, for garnish (optional)
