Creamy Lovage Soup

May 15, 2018

Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend. My lovage is fully grown and ready for cooking. This week, I'm going to share with you a couple recipes that use Lovage plants.

INGREDIENTS:
2tlbs............................Butter
1 bunch.......................Green Onions
1 medium....................Yellow Onion
2 qt..............................Chicken Stock
3 medium....................Russet Potatoes
1 oz.............................Lovage Leaves
1 1/2 tbls.....................Pernod (Optional)
....................................Heavy Cream (Optional)

WEIGHT WATCHERS POINTS: 3 (per serving)

I used my own homemade chicken stock, but any low sodium store brand will do. This is a satisfying meal for any time of the year, but also very healthy for those on weight watchers for example, it's 3 smart points per severing and you won't be hungry afterward!

 DIRECTIONS:
  • Chop the light/white parts of green onions together.
  • Peel/Chop Yellow Onion
  • Finely Chop Loveage Leaves
  • Cut Potatoes into chunks

  • Melt butter into a stock pot over medium-high heat until it froths.
  • Reduce heat to medium and stir in Green/Yellow Onions.
  • Fry until fragrant (About 5 Minutes).

  • Pour in Chicken Stock and chopped Potatoes.
  • Cover and simmer for 30 Minutes or until Potatoes are tender.
  • Mix in Lovage and allow to simmer for another 5 or 6 Minutes.
  • Add in the Pernod. This step is optional, but really brings out the flavors.

  • Remove from heat and blend with an immersion blender, or equivalent until smooth. I used my everyday Ninja Blender for this step.

  • Season with salt/pepper and a spoonful of heavy cream to serve.
