Creamy Potato Soup with Croutons

Creamy Potato Soup with Croutons – Eat What Tonight

Bought a sack of potatoes recently and decide to cook up this creamy potato soup which is very satisfying. It’s a twist from the usual mushroom soup I had and it’s delicious ! Had it served with some freshly toasted croutons and it made up a complete and filling meal already.

The texture of this soup is rich and wholesome and I added evaporated milk at the end to make it even more creamy and tantalizing. This recipe calls for the use of leek as well which is just in time since I have some leftover for it from the CNY. The soup flavors come from a blend of some common and ordinary vegetables such as onions, carrots, leek and potatoes but taste pretty extraordinary after blending them all together. Hope you will enjoy this soup as much as I do too.

Potato & Onion Rosti 马铃薯洋葱煎饼

Potato & Onion Rosti 马铃薯洋葱煎饼 – Eat What Tonight

Only 5 ingredients (excluding the cooking oil) needed to make this absolutely delicious Rosti ! Crispy and fragrant on the outside with tender potato shreds within. The gist of this rosti is to shred the potato till thin fine shreds which I’ve done it with the help of a food processor and ensure that most of the water is squeezed out from the potatoes. Then ensure that the oil is hot enough before dipping in each potato rosti. I made mini ones so that it’s easier to get it to crispiness faster and once the Rosti are sitting in the oil, do not move them till they are browned on the sides.

Adding some thinly sliced onions help to bring out the flavors and can enhance the crispiness too. Think of it as our fried shallots which is fragrant and crispy after frying hence the same can be applied when making these Rosti. Just that we are not using shallots in this case as the potatoes will take longer to be fried till browned due to the moisture content and the shallots will get burnt by then. So sliced onions is a good alternative in this case.

I find this recipe is much simpler and easier to follow through and yield pretty good Rosti results so hope it’s beneficial for anyone who wanna try this out too.
